Jerusha White sings at PNE Showdown

Jerusha White, 17, of Fort St. James sings "Lady Marmalade" at this year's PNE Star Showdown.

The competition is a province-wide talent search showcasing the best young performers from around BC over four days of competition.

The annual Fair, an end of summer tradition for thousands of British Columbians, features more than 700 shows, exhibits and attractions that are free with admission. The 2012 Fair at the PNE runs daily through Labour Day, September 3.

White will now be performing this weekend at Music on the Mountain at Murray Ridge with a band she plays with from Prince George.

While White did not win her category or the overall competition, she said she did spark the interest of a scout and she enjoyed the experience.
