Publisher’s Note: October November 2019

KSMO October November 2019

SongBurst 2019 was a blast! As most of you know, this was a “category” singing competition featuring 6 separate and distinct genres of music including: Rock, R&B/Soul, Country, Top 40, Oldies, and Showtunes/Standards. The qualifying rounds took place at 6 individual venues throughout Southern California and lasted most of the summer. The 36 Finalists delivered outstanding performances during the Final Competition at Westminster Lanes in Westminster on September 14th before an elite 5 member panel of judges made up of entertainment industry experts. The capacity crowd enjoyed some of the best singing and entertainment in the Karaoke world!

The individual Category Champions were:

R&B/Soul – Bryan Pearson

Country – Ted Kinnamon

Oldies – Pashion Thompson

Showtunes/Standards – Arwen Guerra

Top 40 – Randall Gray

Rock – Bryan Madigan

And then came the “sing-off.” After an exhibition of exceptional performances, Randall Gray became the Karaoke Vocalist of the Year for 2019 with a sensational version of “.” If you missed this show, you missed a truly great one.

Special thanks to our esteemed panel of judges:

The Pink Lady (TV personality and musical show producer)

Chaplain Dov Cohen (musical show producer)

Marshall Thomas (Southern California on-air radio personality)

Art Kirsch (Media Specialist)

Tyrone DuBose (R&B Historian)
