"Who's Your Diva?" to be held Saturday

Posted: September 12, 2012 - 11:03pm

Juneau Lyric Opera will hold their second annual “Who’s Your Diva?” fundraiser on Sept. 15, featuring an all-new lineup of local divas.

This year’s divas are Bobbi Mitchell, Cheryl Crawford, Dawn Wehe, Frances Leach, Giselle Stone, Laurie Soderstrom, Rhonda Jackson-Bear, Sandy Fortier and Taylor Vidic

Diva competitors will perform two songs at the event, backed by Juneau musicians Michael Maas on piano and guitar, Simon Taylor on bass and Dale McFarlin on percussion.

Audience members will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite diva in the form of monetary contributions. The winning diva will be crowned Juneau’s official diva.

All proceeds benefit JLO.

Last year’s inaugural event sold out quickly, prompting organizers to move this year’s performances to Centennial Hall. Last year’s winner was Shona Strauser, who performed Heart’s “Crazy On You” and Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep.”
