With huge crowds and exceptional singing performances, KaraokeFest 2011 has now come to a close. But what a day…the biggest and best KaraokeFest ever!
First of all, we would like to thank our major sponsors, Ace Karaoke, VocoPro, ProSound and Karaoke Kruise for their generous support of this event. These fine companies make it possible to have this day-long celebration of Karaoke every year for all of us to enjoy. Please show them your support for all they do for Karaoke.
And then there are our prize sponsors, Ace Karaoke, ProSound, VocoPro, Sound Choice and Chartbuster. The generosity of these companies speaks for itself and they are also certainly deserving of everyone’s support.
The overflow crowd was treated to an exciting day of fantastic singing and entertainment! The children in the Crème de la Kids contest wowed the crowd with just about every genre of song from Rock to Show Tunes. The Crème de la King competitors were next paying tribute to the memory of Elvis as they graced the stage with their colorful costumes and exciting renditions of some of the King’s most beloved tunes. And, of course, the Crème de la Creme Finalists rocked the Plaza de las Americas Stage for nearly 5 hours with terrific, concert quality performances.
Special thanks go to the multi-talented Marshall Thomas of KFROG 95.1 FM for another fine job of hosting the Crème de la Crème Finals Competition again this year. Thanks also to our good friend, Manny Pacheco, the best event emcee that anyone could ask for. And in his 2nd year at KaraokeFest, the popular host of “What’s Up Orange County,” Scott Stewart, hosted the Crème de la Kids and Crème de la King Final Competition. Thank you, Scott for another excellent job! And our gratitude goes to Crème de la Kids coordinator, Candice Worl and to Crème de la King Coordinator, Tony Christina, for their tireless efforts in making the dream come true for all of their talented contestants.
And HUGE thanks go to every single one of the gracious volunteers who gave so much of their time and energy to make KaraokeFest such a special event for everyone. We are deeply appreciative of your efforts.
