Asia Davis of Jamestown, a first-year business student at Columbia College, won the California State Fair Talent search competition over the Labor Day weekend. She also captured in the Tuolumne County Idol contest in July. Her next step is the Nationals, which she anticipates with be in New York City later this year.
” I was terribly nervous and didn’t think I will win,” said Davis. ” I didn’t have the voice range that the others have. After performing, she was mentally and physically drained, and couldn’t believe that they call my name as the winner. In fact, I’m still in shock!”
Her prizes for winning at the state level included $1,000 in cash, road trip to the nationals and complete makeover, shopping spree and vocal lessons – a total value of about $10,000.
Born in San Francisco, Davis lived in the number of cities across the country before moving to Jamestown earlier this year to be with her grandparents, Richard and Hazel Mitchell. Uncertain of what the future holds for her as a performer, Davis has a personal goal of getting an education and pursuing a career in business within the music industry
