Local woman places in Top 5 of Sing-Off
Trina Williams placed in the top five at last week`s finals of the 21st Great Kansas City Sing-Off, held Nov. 27 at the Radisson Hotel in Overland Park.
To qualify for the finals, Williams won top prize at karaoke contests held at Kelly`s restaurant in Basehor.
At the finals, Williams was one of 24 singers who had three minutes in the spotlight. Participants were judged on their singing ability, as well as on audience participation.
Williams sang "Sin Wagon," a country western tune by the Dixie Chicks for her first number. After she was named to the top five, she sang another song, "Have Mercy," by the Judds.
She received a gift certificate to a Kansas City restaurant as her prize.
Williams, who lives in Tonganoxie with her grandparents, Jim and Judy Erwin, is an advertising sales representative at The Mirror.
