By: Robert S Weinroth

Boca Chamber Festival Days got off to a great start as a packed house cheered on the eight finalists in the 2019 Built Ford Tough Cheribundi Boca Raton Bowl Idol talent competition presented by Marshall Grant, PLLC at the Boca Raton Innovation Campus.

The event was part of the month-long Boca Chamber Festival Days and helping to support the Bowl’s Charity Partner, Spirit of Giving and its annual Back to School Bash.

After performing live in two rounds, Evelyn and Raphael Martins, a sister/brother duet triumphed. In addition to a handsome trophy and tickets to the Bowl game where they will have the opportunity to sing the National Anthem at the 2019 bowl on Saturday, December 21 at FAU Stadium.

Chosen through an open-to-the-public round of online voting, the eight finalists ranged in age from 13 to 44 from Boca Raton, Boynton Beach, Deerfield Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Hobe Sound, Port St. Lucie and Wellington.

Each finalist performed a song of their choice for the live audience and a combination of audience votes and judges’ selections determined the top three.

The top three who made it on to the final round of the competition to perform the National Anthem for the judges to determine the reigning champion were:

Hannah Crampton-Thomas, 20, a vocalist from Boca Raton. She sang “They Just Keep Moving the Line;”

the winning team of Evelyn Martins, 31, and Raphael Martins, 28, a vocalist duet from Deerfield Beach who sang “Speechless;” and

Emily Rubino, 15, a vocalist from Boca Raton who sang “Don’t Rain on My Parade.”

The winners of the 2019 Built Ford Tough Cheribundi Boca Raton Bowl Idol talent competition presented by Marshall Grant, PLLC at BRIC are eager to perform the National Anthem during opening ceremonies prior to game kick-off.
