Priscilla's record deal

I stumbled across this story and figured it was worth sharing.

Waxhaw resident and UNC freshman Priscilla Townsend stopped by a summer fair, ended up entering a karaoke contest and winning the contest with her performance of the self-composed "How Did I Know." The Daily Tarheel has the story:
Priscilla Townsend, a freshman pursuing dental hygiene, stopped by the Waxhaw, N.C., fair this summer to see some rescue puppies.

Townsend left the fair with a three-year record contract.


Townsend sang her self-authored song “How Did I Know” in a karaoke contest at the fair.

The song — now her first single on iTunes — brought her victory and the attention of Charlotte-based The Bench Studios producer Rick Lapinsky, who then asked Townsend to sign with the company.
Read the whole thing. For those interested in checking out her song, it can be purchased on iTunes for a mere buck. She's got a website too.

For the life of me, I can't think of the "summer fair" in Waxhaw with the karaoke contest where this all began. Can someone refresh my memory?
