PRESTONSBURG – Big Sandy Idol is once again crowning winners at area high schools. Big Sandy Community and Technical College (BSCTC) held its Big Sandy Idol competition at Prestonsburg High School on Friday, August 26. Big Sandy Idol is sponsored by Gearheart Communications.
Nine students participated for coveted spots for the annual Big Sandy Idol regional competition, which will be held in March 2017 at the Mountain Arts Center in Prestonsburg. Ally Davis was crowned the winner at Prestonsburg High School. Isabella Jacobs and Wesley Hager finished as runner-up behind Davis. Now, Davis, Jacobs and Hager will advance to the regional competition and have a chance to earn a spot on the Big Sandy Singers, an album recording and other prizes.
“The talent at Prestonsburg High School was absolutely amazing,” said Clayton Case, director of fine arts at BSCTC. “Every year, these students raise the bar, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
Students at Prestonsburg High School were also treated to a concert by the Big Sandy Singers and Band, an elite group of vocalists and musicians comprised of BSCTC students.
Big Sandy Idol will visit Paintsville High School on Friday, September 2.
