A Laramie singer will be joining a group of contestants who will all compete for $10,000 at a singing competition being held in Afton, Wyoming, called The Vocalist.

Caitlyn Walker of Laramie is part of eight contestants that will be competing on August 9, 2021.

Contestants were selected as part of an audition process. Hopeful singers from all around the country, coast to coast, submitted acappella auditions which were judged by previous winners of the competition and the on-stage judges.

During the competition, each contestant will sing one song in the first round, after which the audience will vote via text message for their favorite contestant, and will continue until there is only one contestant left.

More information about The Vocalist can be found at TheVocalistUSA.com.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
