Students at the high school participated in the fourth annual Freeport Idol singing competition before their peers, teachers and administrators. The popular event, which serves as a fundraiser for the ninth-grade select chorus, is based on the national reality series “American Idol.”

Freeport Idol featured various solo and duet songs performed by students who competed for first, second and third place, and were assessed by three guest judges. The winners were Sincere Williams (first place), Myles Carter (second place), and Michael Desir and Makayla Willocks (third place), who performed a duet. Williams, Carter, and Desir and Willocks won $150, $50 and $25, respectively. The guest judges were former Freeport Board of Education president and Freeport Village trustee Debra Mulé; Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir assistant director and administrator Brandon Camphor; and Brooklyn-based R&B and gospel recording artist Taneka Samone.

The ninth-grade select chorus raised $700 in ticket sales. The district congratulates all the students who participated in showcasing their remarkable talents and helped make the event a success.
