— From staff reports

The Mineral Wells Pythian Sisters Temple No. 14 wants to know, “Do you have what it takes to become the next Voice Competition winner of Mineral Wells?”

Pythian Sisters are planning the annual Voice Competition fundraiser and will hold the final tryout for singers on Friday, 6-9 p.m., at the Pythian Hall.

Last year’s winner, Lorraine Crutcher, offered some advice for prospective contestants.

“As a life-long singer who has performed in all different venues and circumstances, I can encourage contestants through a few heartfelt tips,” she said. “Be authentic to their ‘style.’ Song choice to fashion choices – pick what you love and rock it. Sing a song you love, and practice, practice, practice.

Finally, prepare yourself for every outcome, good or bad, and be a good sport and learn from every performance.”

To try out, bring a song selection on a CD and march over to the Pythian Hall, which is located at 610 Pythian Way in Mineral Wells. There is a $25 entry fee for singers. For more information, call 940-452-1228 or 940-682-5239.

The Voice Competition takes place Oct. 26, 6-11 p.m. The sisters welcome event sponsors – just call the numbers above.
