Award-winning vocalist to perform Saturday at Cedar High
CEDAR CITY—Chenille Saunders, a Cedar City resident who recently won two national singing titles for the second consecutive year, will perform a victory concert on Saturday, April 28, at Cedar High School. The concert will begin at 7 p.m.
She recently performed at the North American Country Music Association’s musical competition in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., where she defended both of her 2017 titles as International Female Vocalist of the Year and Female Entertainer of the Year.
At Pigeon Forge, she won top vocalist honors with “Via Dolorosa” and her rendition of “You’ll Never Walk Alone.” For the top entertainer honor, she sang her arrangement of “I’ll Fly Away” and a rendition of “How Great Thou Art.”
“I love to sing, but more importantly, I’m thrilled for the opportunity to use music as a way of blessing more lives and helping others,” she said.
She moved to Cedar City eight months ago after living in Carthage, Ill., for 14 years. In Carthage, she taught and owned Center State Music and Performing Arts School. Since moving to Cedar City, she has also begun teaching locally as well.
Many of her past students have performed on programs like “America’s Got Talent,” “The Voice,” “The X Factor” and “American Idol.”
Admission is $5 for students and $8 for adults. Tickets will be available at the door.
