Senior Idol 2014: A Smashing Success!

August 20, 2014 - Serving Seniors

On Friday, August 15th, the house was packed for our annual “Senior Idol” competition at the Gary and Mary West Senior Wellness Center. This year we had 14 contestants who performed musical numbers, stand-up comedy acts and poetry reading. Prior to the competition, many seniors took part in weekly voice lessons offered at the Wellness Center — they meant serious business!

To get the party started, a live band played familiar tunes as guests danced and sang along. Queen Johnson, a member of Serving Seniors’ Civic Engagement Committee, emceed the event and filled the audience in on fun little tidbits about each contestant before they showed off their talents.

This year’s “Senior Idol” was judged by Sydney Johnson, Lee Wilczek, Joann Bozak, Magaly Marion and cash prizes were awarded to the top four contestants. The line-up was chock full of talent and we’re already excited to see what next year’s competition will bring!
