Laurita IDOL 2013 Spring Competition Finale
May 02, 2013 – Laurita IDOL 2013 Spring Competition brought out some truly local talented performers who over several weeks sang their hearts out. The full house of winery guests were blown away by their impressive performances, says Ray Shea the winery’s proprietor and Idol MC.
Laurita is proud to announce that Nicole Spadafino, of Jackson NJ, took home the 1st place grandprize of $1,000! Coming in a close second was the talented Rachel Rocco, of Hamilton NJ, winning a one night stay for two at the Inn at Laurita Winery. And, last, but certainly not least, Tinida Clark, of Roselle Park NJ, walked away with the third place prize of a $100 Laurita Gift Certificate and two free wine tastings. Fabulous runner ups were: Jeannette Lynn, Bruce Bassman, Gina Leigh, Dan Toth, and John Muccino.
The competition began with over 30 contestants, with 8 reaching the finals competing for the 1st place title. Each finalist sang one song of their choice and was judged by the Laurita Idol Contest judges. The winners were announced Thursday evening May 02, 2013, at the Final Finale.
It was a very tough decision, said Victor Sevcenko, one of the three judges, the others being Nicole Salerno and Steve Berger, “as all of the performers gave it their everything and were spectacular.”
The evening closed with Nicole singing one last song, “Someone Else’s Story” from the musical Chess. It was a beautiful ending to a wonderful and exciting event at Laurita Winery.
Congratulations to all our Idol winners and participants!
