With nearly 50 musicians vying for the grand prize, Sing United has just crowned a champion. James Island-based band Gritty Flyright took home the top prize in a spirited final against Berkeley High School senior Shyleah Booker.
In difficult economic times, Trident United Way launched a new and unique fundraising event and community response was overwhelming. Including the final round, the event raised more than $65,000 to support community programs.
The playoff style bracket featured competitors facing off in weekly competitions where the most votes would move to the next round. Each dollar donated equaled a vote.
Wes Liston, bandleader for Gritty Flyright, said helping the community and promoting Charleston area music is a win-win. His neighbors in James Island held a giant party in his honor, including a pontoon boat concert for fans who made generous donations to Trident United Way on his behalf.
Final calculations went from $50,000 early in the last day of the competition to more than $65,000 when all votes were completed.
Money raised during tournament voting will support Trident United Way in its ongoing mission to improve the education, financial stability and health of every Tri-County community member. Each dollar vote goes to help people in need during these tough economic times.
The grand prize winner will receive:
- Performance at Sofar Sounds Secret Show
- Opening for an upcoming show with Firefly Distillery & Ear for Music
- Produced music video & private photoshoot
- Electronic press kit, website, domain & one-year hosting
