HIT Idol winners to perform at SummerFest!
Published on Friday, May. 29, 2015
Anybody who attended last November’s Saturday night concert by American Idol® Season 10 finalist, Naima Adedapo will surely remember what a dynamic performance Adedapo presented. Accompanied by our local HIT Idol finalists, her message of self acceptance and listening to your inner voice was both powerful and appropriate.
After her show, she posted: “I had such a wonderful time this weekend in Ironwood Michigan!! What an awesome town. Congratulations to the H.I.T Idol winners and thank you to everyone who was a part of making the event happen. Shout out to everyone who came out and rocked with me on Saturday, your energy was amazing!! Until the next time Much love, Naima”.
So impressed was Adedapo by the quality, energy and stage presence of our young performers, that after the winners were announced, she invited all seven winners to perform with her at one of her Milwaukee shows. True to her word, she has invited our local songsters to perform with her at Milwaukee’s Summerfest, where she will headline the Saturday July 4th show!
We want to support our young performers and help them turn this opportunity into reality, by soliciting donations to offset their expenses. Our winners have to be in Milwaukee by Friday noon to rehearse with Naima on Friday afternoon, so their expenses will consist of:
* Transportation to/from Milwaukee
* Two night’s accommodation
* Wardrobe ~ we’d like to dress them in some sort of “uniform” - even if a simple T
* Incidental expenses
Our estimate is that each of the seven participants will be looking at a total expense of somewhere in the vicinity of $450 each. Any contribution you can make to off-set their expenses will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your consideration!
Checks should be made payable to Ironwood Theatre, or click the button below to make a secure on-line conribution. Donations will be pooled and divided evenly between the seven HIT Idol finalists to offset their expenses.
