Sugar Land Town Square recently hosted the first round of its 8th annual Sugar Land Superstar competition, spotlighting local talent in Fort Bend County. Eleven contestants competed, and the judges named Darcy Campbell, Sant DeLeon, Carman Hammond and Brittany Villamil the first four semifinalists in this year’s competition.
These semifinalists will join the next group of semifinalists to be named in July to compete at the 2013 Sugar Land Superstar finale on Saturday, August 10 from 7-9:30 p.m. The winner will receive a prize package with items from Sugar Land Town Square retailers and restaurants, and will have the opportunity to sing at future Town Square events.
The contestants were voted on by a panel of local, celebrity judges, including Tony Bracy, record representative at Capital Records; Sarah Golden, folk singer/songwriter and former contestant on NBC’s The Voice; and Micahl Wyckoff, music photographer. The judges’ criteria included vocal talent, stage presence and crowd response. Local radio personality Michele Fisher was the evening’s emcee.
