Zoe Strongman won the Nelson's Best Singer contest held at L.V. Rogers on November 15.

Zoe Strongman named Nelson’s Best Singer

In second place was Emma Chart and tied for third were Alexandra Schlosser and Lily Miller.

Singers who came out to audition for Nelson’s Best Singer at the L.V. Rogers auditorium last Friday got a surprise when they found out, due to low enrolment, they would all automatically advance to the finals, which would be held in place of auditions that very night.

A panel of judges selected the winners. First place went to Zoe Strongman, second was Emma Chart, tied for third were Alexandra Schlosser and Lily Miller. The event raised more than $1,000 for the LVR grad class.
