Global Arm, Inc. and Teens Exercising Extraordinary Success (T.E.E.S.) hosted the inaugural Katy Tween Teen Talent Showcase Competition on Saturday, Dec. 3 at Zo-ca-lo Lounge. Contestants from Katy ISD and Fort Bend ISD entered the competition. Along with their parents, they networked with many recording industry professionals and received valuable advice on career paths, personality, stage presence and business matters.

Two of the contestants performed original numbers and the others treated the audience to covers by Carrie Underwood, Selena Gomez, Etta James, and Jamie Fox. Vocal ability wasn’t the only surprise of the day – two of the contestants performed their numbers by playing the guitar. The first place winner of the showcase was Reagan Douglas. Douglas performed a song she wrote titled “Till The End” (dedicated to cancer victims) with her guitar. The second place winner was Skyler Sadler who performed “At Last” by Etta James, and the third place winner was Kaitlyn Wright who performed “Change” by Carrie Underwood.

Douglas won a package valued at over $16,000, which included a complimentary studio session at Music World Studios (courtesy of Matthew Knowles), a complimentary photo shoot (courtesy of Jamie LeBlanc Photography), a featured song on Coast 2 Coast Mix tape hosted by Wildman Teddy T (courtesy of Star Quality Entourage), and a featured song on the upcoming film soundtrack starring Snoop Dog (courtesy of Vision World Entertainment).

T.E.E.S. will continue to host future events to raise funds for a Teen Community Center in Katy, as well as expand their Teen Table Talk program to other neighborhoods around Houston. For more information, visit teeskaty.com.
