Tyler, Texas — Singers of all ages lined up Saturday at the Tyler Broadway Square mall for a chance to become the next 2013 East Texas Idol.
Each contestant was allowed sixty seconds to sing an a cappella song of their choice for a panel of judges.
The top seven contestants chosen by the judges sang one full song for a last chance at the title. After some deliberating Ashley Lucas, 20, of Bullard was chosen as winner.
The winner of this singing competition will have a guaranteed audition with American Idol producers on August 7. Travel and hotel expenses will be paid for by 95.3 102.3 The Breeze radio station.
