Voices For Hope
2007 Winners 

CURRENT ENTRY FORMS (by Mail or Online)

The 2007 Voices For Hope final auditions were held on June 30 at the historic Granite Theater in Westerly, RI.    For 2007, LUNCH partnered with the organization Angels on Horseback of Exeter RI,  which provides therapeutic riding for children with physical and mental disabilities. Kay Pere and Bill Pere wrote a  song called "Angels on Horseback",  making it available to the organization to use as a theme song.  Voices For Hope launched a search for a young vocalist to sing the song and be a spokesperson for the benefits of therapeutic riding.    Entries were received from four states, and the 15 chosen finalists auditioned live at the Granite Theater in Westerly RI,   to win a $500 scholarship and to be a Voices For Hope Ambassador, using the power of popular music to produce positive social action.    Our sincerest thanks to all who participated in this event.   Below are the 15 finalists, all exceptionally talented.   As far as we are concerned, any young person who gives their time and talent to help others in need is a winner in all the things that count in life.   All 15 finalists are eligible to take part in special LUNCH recording and performing events.
