Tribal member Melanie Seibel participated in Fort Lewis College’s Spotlight-to-Stardom talent show. The fundraiser was held October 16 at the FLC Community Concert Hall in Durango. This is the first Four Corners Talent Search and was a benefit for the non-for-profit concert hall at FLC. There were a total of eighteen participants and they all competed for recognition from various entertainment industry judges. Melanie’s family was in attendance to cheer her on as she sang “Love Will Keep Us Together” by The Captain and Tennille. Melanie said she was extremely nervous about performing in front of so many people but she had a blast doing it anyway. Way to go Mel!!
