The finalists were selected based on performance, creativity, personality, and overall vocals included young men and women from all over the country. Abby Dobson whose sultry rendition of “Born 2 Love U” won over voters and will wow the audience when she takes the stage at Soul Beach in Aruba, May 24th.

“Winning this competition is such an awesome opportunity. It’s HUGE…I get to open for Common and Robin Thicke in ARUBA… how incredible is that! I’m gonna walk away with wonderful experiences this Memorial Day Weekend” stated Abby.
