TeenFest 2K12, held Saturday, April 14, 2012 @ NC Museum of History, in Raleigh, NC was a huge hit! Contestants from various counties throughout the state performed their original anti-violence/anti-drug themed messages to a standing-room only crowd. The competition was fierce, the audience was encouraging and lively, the judges were insightful and direct. DJ Skaz kept the event rockin’ with new and old school music. Congratulations to the TeenFest 2K12 winners:
Special guest performers, Love Jones Girlz, brought the audience to their feet with rousing performances of two songs including their hit single, The Party Don’t Start Without Me.
