Local artists will be taking the stage Friday in hopes of wowing the crowds for Charleston’s Live on the Levee.
Singer Autumn Blaire, 18, has been performing and collecting awards for her singing act since age 8. She made it to Hollywood and performed on "American Idol," appeared on the television show "Chasing Nashville," played at music venues in Nashville, and has set the record for youngest musician to ever perform on the West Virginia Music Hall of Fame stage.
Blaire has multiple songs available for purchase on iTunes including, “Hear Me Now,” “No Place Like Home,” “Daddy’s Little Girl,” and “I’ll Be the DJ.”
Blaire will be performing as the first headliner at Haddad Riverfront Park at 6:30 p.m. Friday.
At the conclusion of Blaire’s performance, set to end at 7:30 p.m., singer Colton Pack will take the stage.
Pack, like Blaire, also has been collecting honors including making it to the top four in the Season 3 of "X Factor USA," and winning Charleston’s Teen Idol. His song, “Wake Me Up” hit the No. 1 spot on the iTunes country chart.
