The enthusiastic and packed audience also enjoyed Broadway selections performed by Broadway star and Grammy nominee Frenchie Davis who starred in RENT on Broadway and the West Coast production of Dreamgirls. Davis, performed "One Night Only" from Dreamgirls and ended her set with the Beyonce's "Halo." Star Search Grand Champion Jake Simpson opened the evening with favorites which included Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'."
