I wanted to say a great big THANK YOU to all of those who voted for my cousin Carla Bonnell during the CBC Searchlight Contest. Carla made it to the third round to the top ten representing Northern Ontario. Last year she'd got to round two. She was thrilled to have made it further this time round, and I know how grateful she is to each and every person who voted, supported and encouraged her to keep going.
Needless to say, we are all very proud of her determination, courage and passion for music and the stories she tells about the country, that she dearly loves, Canada.
I thought I'd put her thank you from her face book page on my blog post today.
" What a ride!! I want to thank all of you who supported me in the CBC Searchlight Contest. Third round was AMAZING!! I didn't make the next round, but I'm telling you it was a life changing experience to have so many of you supporting me and encouraging me the way that you did. Top 10 for my region was a real honor! Thanks again!!"
