   In addition to being a first time author and 30-year radio announcer, I have spent the last ten years running the largest Karaoke contest in the US, Karaokefest (sponsored by Karaoke Scene Magazine). Each year we showcase Southern California talent, which is narrowed down to 25 male and 25 female singers. This years finalists performed at the LA County Fair, and based on contestants as judges, they selected the 2009 Male and Female Vocalists of the Year. The female selected was Juliette Rose and the male winner was Abraham McDonald. Each received an autographed copy of Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten Hollywood as one of their prizes, which totaled around $10,000 ($1,000 in cash).

   Oprah Winfrey’s folks were on hand to witness the competition, and selected lucky individuals to perform in a separate contest on her show. McDonald was chosen as a semi-finalist last week as one of eight. From this group, a final three would have a chance to continue to win Oprah’s Karaoke Challengeand Abraham made the cut! He will be on the Oprah Winfrey Show next Thursday to perform before David Foster and Diane Warren for a chance to win the overall Challenge.
