Surrey singer Rykka (Christina Maria Rieder) was named the winner of the 2013 Peak Performance Project last week.

The music competition, hosted by 102.7 The Peak, held its finale Nov. 21 with Rykka, BESTiE and Hannah Epperson vying for the top spot. In the end, Rykka took it.

Writing on her website Tuesday from Jasper, where she was performing, she said the win still hadn't sunk in.

"I'm still in disbelief."

Past Peak winners include Dear Rouge last year, Current Swell in 2011 and Kyprios in 2010.
