“I encourage all talented seniors in the Tennessee Valley to try out, to give it a shot,” said Miranda Perez, Morning Pointe Foundation executive director. “We have seen some great performers so far, and it’s such a unique opportunity to show that seniors can still shine. We have a great audience, and you can win up to $1,000.”
