Miami Starlett Seanetta Carson is one of thousands of singers competing to win the Mary Mary Raise Your Voice Singing Contest. Contestants submit a video of themselves singing a cappella, one of three Mary Mary songs, “Walking”,“Can't Give Up Now”, and “A Little More Jesus." The winner will receive an all expenses paid trip to New Orleans and an opportunity to perform at the Essence Music Festival in July.
Carson, a Miami Gardens native, chose the song, "Can't Give Up Now," because it is inspirational and sums up so many of her life experiences. She says winning the contest would be a tremendous boost for her music career. "Mary Mary, is one of my favorite groups. I admire their style and I love that they are giving amateur singers like myself a spotlight to shine, she said. I hope I get enough votes to win!"
