Castlegar singer Christina (Nina) Amelio (pictured at right) has progressed to round two in the CBC Searchlight Competition. Amelio’s song Who Do You Think You Are received enough votes to put her in the top 25 in our region.

Amelio expressed her excitement: “I’m so happy. It’s been such a great week. CBC followed me on Twitter, they retweeted the song, they played the song. Yamaha Canada retweeted the song. The song got heard and that is what I wanted. A couple of anti-bullying Facebook pages posted it, and I’m really proud about that.”

From the 3,333 original entries nationwide, the contest is now down to 545 for the semi-final round. This round will determine the regional finalists. We are in the Kelowna Radio West region.

 

Voting continues until April 20. Place your vote at music.cbc.ca/artists/Nina-amelio
