The International Idiots Club salutes Leslie Blasing!
The 2013 Valley Star Awards winners were announced in a special ceremony held Feb. 16 at Victoria Palms Resort in Donna in front of an 800-person audience. This year the star selections were a joint effort of Robert Ferguson and the Winter Texan Times. The award for Female Vocalist of the Year went to Leslie Blasing.
Leslie Blasing started out her set with a powerful Streisand song, “The Way We Were,” followed by a lively, “Any Man of Mine.” She did a little mimicking of Elvis with “Return to Sender,” followed by “My Little Runaway.” She slowed the pace with softer “Broken Wing,” by Martina McBride before ending with a lively polka, “Roll Out the Barrel.”
It was a fantastic show with the best entertainers in the Rio Grande Valley entertaining and receiving awards. With this quality of entertainment, it was probably the best Winter Texan show of the season.
The Entertainer of the Year Award went to John Sager. You can read more about the 2013 Valley Star Award Winners here.
