AMVETS threw a terrific holiday weekend

-A A +A
By Jenna McKenna

The usual suspects triumphed at Monday's karaoke contest held at AMVETS Post 88 in Bronson, though the menu of music on tap was long and deep.

It took a three-way sing-off to crown Carissa Fields of Chiefland, with her letter-perfect rendition of Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On." Bronson's Reginald Stacy placed second with his tiebreak song of "Purple Rain," by Prince, and Samantha Beckham was third with Martina McBride's "Independence Day."

The top three were outstanding, with incredible capability of breath and tone control. Beckham is a refreshing contestant to hear, taking chances with complex songs that require fine navigation of half- and quarter-tone changes. She elbowed her way into the tiebreaker with a fierce version of Bobbie Gentry's "Fancy."

Stacy's voice has a sweet spot in the soul register, even when he's singing country, and when he plunges deep, every ear perks up. "Purple Rain" is a standard for him, but he charmed the country crowd with his early entries of "I'm Already Gone" and "Drift Away."
