Greer Idol, Tunes in the Park end series with another huge turnout
JUL 29, 2013

There's no way to know if this little girl's $2 went toward votes for the Greer Idol and Teen winners. 

The little girl in the photo to the left, appears to be a tad sad to see her $2 going to the Greer Idol ballot box Friday night. Casting a vote cost $1 each for three choices.

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.

Greer Idol winner will average $500 for each performance
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.
