Karaoke win sends Surrey singer to Ireland

Surrey songstress Jerrica Santos has earned a spot at contest considered the Olympics of singing after out-crooning 19 other competitors at a national karaoke contest last week.

Santos was awarded the top female grand champion after belting out Hopelessly Devoted to You at the Canadian National Karaoke Championships, held at Edgewater Casino in Vancouver on July 21.

Her prizes included a one-year gold membership to MeAndMic.com, vocal training from RSA Academy and a JM-5 entertainment station from Roland Canada.

She will now travel to Killarney, Ireland to the 2011 Karaoke World Championships in September. Her airfare, accommodation and $500 spending money has also been provided.

In 2004, Santos made it to the top 32 of Canadian Idol.
