My very good friend Vinny Toscano has a cousin Pia that has the voice of an angel. She is from my hometown in Howard Beach, Queens and is a contestant on this season of American Idol. She has made the final 24 and is now trying to move into the final 12, She absolutely killed it tonight by singing "I'll Stand By You" by The Pretenders. Not only did she receive a standing ovation from the crowd (the first and only standing O of the 24 finalists, and she was last to go!!!), Randy Jackson (the only original judge left who has been on for all 10 seasons) said it was one of the greatest performances he has ever seen in the whole run of the show!!!! Pia brought the thunder tonight and is going to be a force this season!!!!
So now I need all you loyal CCD friends and readers to do me a favor and vote for her. Vote early and often, and also support her throughout the season. You can vote by clicking here. Also, become a friend of Pia's on Facebook by clicking here. Tell her Mike from CCD sent you over, and don't stop supporting this wonderful talent. Pia, CCD loves ya... keep it up kid!!!!
