A baker’s dozen vocalists will take the stage, but ... who will keep it?


The Voice Competition is back and – while readers may know some contestants by where they work or where the attend school – this Saturday’s multi-generational lineup of local singers will all start the night on the same, level playing field when they take the stage at Holiday Hills Country Club.

The question the Pythian Sisters pose to each is, “Who will keep the stage?”

Competing for the Voice Competition singing title are local vocalists, including: Marsha Best, JD Choate, Nathan Choate, Heather Thomas Van Deren, Addision Fundis, Willy Coe, Cambren Morrison, Morgan Baker, Chip Procter, Makenzie Lawhon, Casey Lister, James Meeks and Rebeka Primm.

Saturday’s stage action begins at 6 p.m. and goes until around 11 p.m., as singers are brought back in increasingly smaller numbers.

Some are returning from last year’s inaugural singing competition.

Lawhon, now 10 and a seasoned veteran, made it to last year’s top three.

These 13 singers have paid their dues, literally, to step on the stage and hope citizens will ante up to watch the show at the Mineral Wells Pythian Sisters Temple No. 14 fundraiser – or fun raiser. Contestants are currently raising votes throughout the community for $1 each and will come to the contest with some support in their wallets. Cash votes will count for 50 percent of the contestants’ scores.

The remaining score depends upon which singers the panel, of nearly- and almost-famous, judges like the best. Judging this year, is a fleet of all stars, including:

• Adam Hull, who needs little introduction; however, for those who need it, he teaches at Houston Elementary and plays various gigs, from classical guitar to rock, when he’s not teaching.

• Hilary Allen, who portrayed the villainous Miss Agatha Hannigan in Mineral Wells High School’s theatrical production of “Annie” last year.
