)-- The stars shine in Las Vegas.
As the sun slowly began to drop behind the horizon, a number of young, soon to be stars, began to light up the stage at this year’s, Cool Blue Talent's - Rising Stars Concert and Festival, at the Galleria at Sunset Mall. Though postponed for twenty-four hours, due to high winds, when the performers took the stage, the crowd was blown away by their amazing talent.
Last month's semi-final round selected the best of Las Vegas’ young talent to perform at the finals. Without big red buttons or spinning chairs, the judges were out to find the very best talent in the Las Vegas area.
After the last note was song and final bows were taken, the Rising Stars Concert and Festival panel of judges had the unenviable task of choosing the grand prize winners in five categories.
After much discussion and votes were tallied, the winning performers for 2014, Rising Stars Concert and Festival were announced.
