The amount of talent in the Magic Valley amazes me. I've lived in Salt Lake, Las Vegas, and Kansas City and we seem to have more great singers in our little town than any of those big cities.

The Powerful Voices singing competition aims to bring some of those voices to the spotlight while giving a voice to children under court protection due to abuse or neglect. The CASA Program is a volunteer program that helps ensure these kids have a guardian and someone to advocate for their best interests.

Powerful Voices is Friday and Saturday at the Orpheum in Twin Falls.
