On Sunday, April 14, the crowds gathered to crown Tumbler Ridge’s new musical idols at the annual TR Idol competition.
This year, the competition focused on quality not quantity. After a fantastic performance by the TR Children’s Choir, Annika Westergard, Lucia Jensen, Miah Gage, Savannah White and Kyra Bertrand competed in the age 6-9 category. Annika Westergard won with a beautiful rendition of ‘Castle On The Cloud’.
For the age 10 to 11 category, Aidan Broderick, Summer Breckeridge and Isaac Jensen performed. The crowd certainly appreciated Aidan and Isaac’s showmanship and the judges were divided in their decision. In the end the glory went to Aidan Broderick, who sang ‘Radioactive’ accompanied by his father, Blaine on the guitar.
It was a fantastic show this year with the bonus of a brilliant first performance set by the ‘Humble Mumbles’, who played during judging deliberation time. Congratulations to all contestants for their quality performances and a special thank you to Erin Hannah for dedicating her time to coach these young singers and organize the event.
