Wheeling Resident Wins "The Next Big Voice" Contest
The Next Big Voice held its finals Saturday night at the Wheeling Island Casino-Racetrack.
The contestants submitted a 30 second YouTube about a month ago, and then, the judges then picked their 20 favorites. Fans also got to choose an extra semi-finalist who competed on Saturday night. They were whittled down to these Top 5 finalists.
The winner is Kaydon Hardman of Wheeling. Hardman will receive $5,000 cash, a two song demo with Sony music in New York City, and a meeting with the Senior Vice President of Warner Chappel Music Publishing, Jake Ottmann.
