e at Infinite Magazine walked into the school auditorium not knowing what to expect, but we were definitely in for a surprise. We were nicely entertained by recording artists Lil Rick
of Def Jam Records and Shon
of Sony Records as we waited for the models.
While the huge room started to fill up with proud parents, close friends, happy children, and eager photographers the DJ played some of the newest hits which made the crowd dance in their seats.
As the lights turned down the red curtain opened and we all eagerly awaited the divas of the evening. The first scene “D.I.T. (Diva’s In Training)” was an awesome performance by young women dressed in white button down blouses and school girl skirts showing that they were truly divas in training. They danced to the music of Fergie’s Glamorous Life. Everyone screamed joyfully to see their friend, daughter, or sister giving their best.
Renewing the Mind Dance Ministry performed a very well choreographed praise dance which the crowd totally enjoyed. It was uplifting.
The “An Urban Flare Has Arisen” was another scene that had everyone’s attention. Twelve girls stood on the stage with colorful masks and glitter on their faces. They were wearing urban outfits like tights and other colorful pieces of attire. The young diva moved around the stage like zombies to the tune of Madonna’s Hung Up as if they were under a fashion spell.
After all the performances the question was still in the air “Who will be Sayre’s next top model?” It was time for the 16 girls and guy to rip the runway and show off their stuff. The first walk was judged on personality and the second was on straight runway. After everyone walked, it was time to deliberate.
While the judges were debating the models walked showing off their 80’s style clothing while dancing the Soul Train Line. Everyone expressed amusement when the girls danced to Freak Out by Chic. When the fun was over, the girls lined up in a straight line waiting for the judges to tell us who Sayre’s next top model for 2007 would be.
It was a tense moment for the models as all of them held each others hands tightly Shanay Ball, Miss Black Pennsylvania 2006; Erica Kane, Radio Personality Power 99FM; Antwain D. Hill, Distinct Le’ Couture Agency; William Brown, Dark Tower Records Affiliate; and Edwina Justice, Urbanea had finally came up with the results.
Erica Kane walked onto the stage and said, “The winner of Sayre’s top model is Felecia C.!” They crowd went wild. She had won the trophy, $100 dollars cash, a photo shoot, and as a bonus she got the contract with Distinct Le’ Couture Clothing Co. and agency.
You could hear the parents and friends scream with delight. They gave her the trophy and the microphone but Felecia could barely say anything she was nearly crying with joy but she did manage a humble, “thank you.”
Something tells me that Felcia C. will be a diva to look out for in the near future.
We would like to thank Jovanna Townsend and Lisa Townsend for the invitation and look forward to next year. The production was awesome and very well put together.
