More than 2,000 college students, parents and Belmont community members attended the Urban Pop Showcase on Oct. 8 in the Curb Event Center.
The student-run event was hosted by Keayana Robinson and featured music from Bryce Merritt, Tre Houston, Cameron Bedell and The Skunks as well as 2009 showcase winner Miss B. Judges declared Houston the showcase winner.
Showcase producer Anna-Margarita Queza dedicated the showcase to her mother, who is six months into remission from breast cancer.
The concert raised $1,067.55 for Keep A Breast Foundation, a nonprofit organization for breast cancer awareness through arts events and fundraising efforts. Students producing and competing in the showcase also created a public service announcement to promote breast cancer awareness and donations to support research.
