Established and hopeful stars from country to classic included Jon Patrick Walker, Christopher DiCristo, The Chalks, Anastacia McCleskey, Jessica Hershberg, Terese Genecco and Amy Toporek.
Then there was Anastacia McCleskey, "a star. Period," says Susie. She's graced Broadway in “Priscilla Queen of the Desert,” “Hair” and “Tarzan.”
"She sang Whitney Houston like a bird and then brought the house down with 'The Hokey Pokey.'" Susie told me — and I totally agree — only a star can do that.
