AUDIO: Junior Achievement's "Watch a Rising Star" Contestants - Micailah Lockhart & Anthony Coons

We feature the final two contestants in the "Watch a Rising Star" competition. 

Micailah Lockhart attends Dreyfoos School of the Arts in West Palm Beach and Anthony Coons, a senior at American Heritage School in Delray Beach. 

Anthony tells us that he has picked up on information from Junior Achievement of the Palm Beaches & Treasure Coast.

"The stuff that they teach about owning your own economic success and taking initiative and going out and getting what you want, not sitting back and waiting for something to happen.  It's a great cause.  I love it."

 

Micailah wants to have a career in music and acting.  She sees herself having a successful singing career, with a tv show to boot and later a run or two on Broadway. 

"Watch a Rising Star" is at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach this Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014.  Five students with amazing talent from local schools will be competing for their share of $10,000 in scholarship money. 

Anthony will be singing and playing guitar, while performing a Billy Joel song, while Micailah will be performing a song from the musical "Dreamgirls".
