Winners of the 2nd Annual "Wilson Idol" competition announced

As promised, the “Wilson Idol” talent show (held September 27, 2014) was a most competitive evening as far as its producer Dr. Mildred Summerville and the rest of the distinguished panel of judges were concerned.  Those who presented their talents are certain to have felt that same intensity. In fact, many of the score cards were so closely ranked that declaring winners became extremely challenging on the part of the statistician.  After the four top scorers were initially identified, the judges made the final decision to categorize the scores into Gospel, R&B, and Instrumental.  Therefore, Dr. Summerville and the judges are pleased to announce the top scorers of each category.
