Surrey's Jerrica Santos wins Variety talent competition
It was Jerrica Santos' night to shine – and she took the opportunity to turn up the heat.
Chosen to be in the top 10 at the third-annual Variety's Got Talent competition, Santos outperformed her nine fellow competitors on the weekend to win the contest at River Rock Show Theatre on Saturday night.
Judges included music manager Bruce Allen, Shannon Tweed-Simmons (star of Gene Simmons Family Jewels), Global BC's Steve Darling, Britt and Carly McKillip (from One More Girl) and Vancouver Sun music writer Tom Harrison.
The competition will be aired on go! Vancouver on Feb. 13 at 5 p.m. More than 325 people auditioned for the Variety contest, which was whittled down to the top 10.
As winner, 24-year-old Santos receives a Tom Lee Rising Star package and will appear on the Variety Show of Hearts Telethon on Feb. 16-17.
