Kieffer Mendoza won Greer Idol and Kody Young won Greer Idol Teen, sponsored by Greer Cultural Arts.  They earned $1,500 and $500, respectively. It should be noted that Young was making his public singing debut in the teen competition.

JUL 16, 2013

This small tent does nothing to cover people during a fierce thunderstorm last Friday in Greer. The deluge of rain accompanied by lightning forced the second consecutive cancellation of Greer Idol and Tunes in the Park at the City Park amphitheater.

The payday for a Greer Idol winner will average $500 per performance.

Rain cancelled the past two Tunes in the Park and Idol performances, meaning winners will compete a maximum of three weeks – weather permitting. The summer entertainment series has only been held June 28, at the City’s Freedom Blast celebration.
