It is kind of amazing that such young girl is representing Queens, NY in this contest. I am particularly moved by the energy she transmits on her soft singing voice.
Tristen is participating at the WOR’s Shining Start Talent Search 2008 WOR Shining Start 2008 Talent Show. Tristen is the youngest contestant at 12 1/2 years-old and the only one representing all of Queens (and NYC). In the past, most winners have been from Long Island or New Jersey.
