Alpha Pizza names 'idol'
According to Alpha Pizza owner Nick Egarhos, this year’s Alpha Pizza Idol event was the closest finish ever, with talented singer Eva Peake taking top honors and the $500 prize after a sing-off with Seth Alderman. “Eva prevailed but it was very close,” Egarhos said.
According to his fans, 15-year-old Alderman, pictured below, has a voice and a stage presence with a maturity far beyond his relatively few years, singing the oldies from the likes of Sinatra. He proved that and more on Saturday in Apollo Beach, taking second place and a $250 prize.
Rounding out the finalists from the Friday night competition were Jeff Smith winning third place and $125, Andrea Paxton taking fourth place and a $25 gift certificate and Tony DuPont winning fifth place and a $25 gift certificate.
