Stars of the future are competing for season three Beech Bend Superstar singing contest. The winner on the SuperStar stage for week one was Kaeli-Anne Moriah from Portland.

Kaeli-Anne sang an original song she and her father wrote entitled, "In a Freak Show." This was her first time to compete in a contest and she is off to an awesome start!

Not only were there shining stars on board the SuperStar stage, but the judges were shining as well!

Judging the week one competition were Preshias Tomes-Harris, Brian Mansfield, and Donna Rich.

Preshias Tomes-Harris holds the position of Vice President of Artist & Industry Relations, for PCG Nashville, an artist development company in Nashville.

Brian Mansfield -- USA TODAY's Nashville correspondent -- began writing about country music for the paper in 1997 and became leader of its online American Idol community, Idol Chatter, in 2009.

Donna Rich, National Sales Manager for WGGC Country Radio Station is heavily involved with the station's 95 LIVE country concert series held at Beech Bend.

The official scorekeeper for week one was Samantha Thornton of PCG, Nashville. Samantha is a young music industry professional and currently holds the title of Artist Coordinator for PCG Nashville & Porter - Gentry Productions.

Hosting the show is Renita Cook, from 95Live WGGC. Beech Bend has partnered with 95 Live, The Goober, this season for the outstanding singing contest that showcases exceptional singing talent.

The 2010 season of Beech Bend Superstar hosted contestants from ten different states, as far away as Pennsylvania. Word is spreading that you can be discovered on Beech Bend Super Star Stage. On any given Saturday, doors of opportunity can open for any up and coming artist. Beech Bend Super Star has had the honor of hosting American Idol contestants, Regional Colgate Country Showdown winners, Nashville Star contestants, plus national, state, and county contest winners, and other singing competitions.

Last year's runner-up, Brandy Neely, from Louisville, KY, went on to audition for American Idol in Nashville and made it to Hollywood. She was in the top 100 American Idol.

We sincerely appreciate the Nashville music industry for participating as judges and donating prizes for the show.

"The Sound of Heaven"

With great pleasure, I highly recommend Kaeli Anne Moriah Watkins as both a musician and a minister.

She truly has the ability to release the sound of heaven as she sings! Her entire family brings a powerful Throne Room Presence when they minister and that glow is reflected in her music. I have so often received healing, encouragement and strength as I listened and participated with them in worship.

Kaeli Anne will inspire and challenge multi generational growth as she shares the songs that she has written, co-written, or adapted.

You will be blessed!! - Sarah Lowe, South Central National Area Leader, National Day of Prayer Task Force, www.nationaldayof

"I Wholeheartedly Recommend Kaeli Anne Moriah"

I have had the great privilege of knowing and ministering with Kaeli Anne for many years. I have been continually impressed with the maturity of her talents as a musician, vocalist and worship leader.

However, more than these obvious gifts, I have been blessed with her mature, humble walk with Jesus Christ. What has impressed me the most about Kaeli Anne is her love for others. She has freely loved others and treated them as family as she ministers to and alongside them.

She has a servant’s heart, and out of that she leads others into meaningful worship whether it is of the contemporary or traditional style.

I have unfailingly found Kaeli Anne to be a quality young woman of personal excellence, integrity, and Christian character. I can wholeheartedly recommend her because of her ambition in serving God and others while growing closer to Him. - Caleb Soles, Minister of Youth and Music, Woodward Church of the Nazarene, 400 Downs Ave., Woodward,

I highly recommend Kaeli-Anne. She will truly be a blessing to you, as she has been and continues to be, to us. - William Sutton, Jr., Minister Of Music, New Beginnings Ministries, Bowling Green, Kentucky

"Unabashed Love for Jesus Christ"

The first time Kaeli Anne sang for us at Manna Cafe Ministries, she opened a capella with "Be Thou My Vision" and it went right through me.

Her voice is rich, lovely, and unique. It's a great pleasure to have her sing and/or share her unabashed love for Jesus Christ. Kaeli is a delightful person inside and out. - Victoria York, Co-founder, Manna Cafe Ministries, Clarksville, Tennessee

***Kaeli Anne Moriah is available for powerful full band shows or she can scale back for more intimate acoustic shows with a guitar and vocal performance. Please contact us with any questions. We look forward to helping you bring her to your area!***


Kaeli ANNE Moriah’s sound is pop/rock with its southern roots showing. Her vocals are like a blend of Mac Powel from Third Day and Ella Fitzgerald.

She has opened for Ricky Skaggs at the National Day of Prayer Nashville, played Six Flags (Chicago), and shared the stage with nashville luminaries Camille Wallin, Chris Wallin, Ira Dean, Jeffrey Steele, CJ Watson, and more. Having played everything from churches, to festivals, coffee houses, songwriter rounds, and special events, she has learned her craft well and with God's anointing connects with her audience with warmth and joy!

Kaeli-Anne grew up in the Church and at Nashville Songwriter events with the sounds of country and rock instruments all around her. She says, "I’ve been involved in leading worship since I was little, and I also got to grow up right in the middle of the Nashville songwriting community. My Papa and Mama both spent a lot of time teaching me the craft of songwriting, and the importance of a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. I started out in Praise & Worship, and it will always be a part of what I do musically. I love the vertical in the musical equation. But I also love telling stories about life... You know, connecting with people horizontally. Showing in a song just how real God’s love and grace are. Maybe helping someone see that God does know their name and cares so much. Showing them that this Jesus, who I know, is a Saviour like no other." Vulnerable power, eyes-wide-open purity, disciplined passion, Kaeli Anne is comfortably herself!

Whether it is Praise & Worship or Christian Contemporary Music, Kaeli Anne Moriah writes and sings in a style that is fresh, quirky-fun, and just as direct as she is. The seasoned maturity of her voice belies her 20 years. Earthy brokenness can become notes as fragile as crystal in a moment, and then scorch the air with emotion.

Raised in a close knit family where ministry, prayer, and music permeates the fabric of everything from dinner table talk to work and play, it is no surprise that she decided early to pursue music as a career.

After an intense season of soul searching, she went on to answer God's specific call on her life. The call to; make loving God and people her passion, intimately knowing the Creator her pursuit, and music and prayer her ministry.

If you were to follow her on the quest for her heart's desire, you would find yourself at worship music and intercessory prayer gatherings, house concerts, coffee houses, many different denominational and non-denominational churches, and youth events.

She says, "The Body of Christ is amazing! It's breathtaking in its variety and I love it all."
