The 7th Annual First Columbia Teen Star Musical Competition on Sunday, May 21, 2017 was
brought to you exclusively by First Columbia Bank & Trust Co.

The Winner is...

Maiah Farley
Central Columbia High School

Maiah was a returning finalist from Teen Star 2016 where she won third place. This year, she took it up a notch (well, 2 notches!) and won the top prize singing songs that fit her style perfectly–Beautiful by Christina Aguilera and She Used to Be Mine by Sara Bareilles. She won $2,000 for herself, plus all ticket proceeds from the finale will be donated to the music departments at the 12 finalists' high schools.

We are honored to crown Maiah Teen Star 2017 and look forward to hearing much more of her lovely music! Congratulations Maiah.
