Local Performer Sings Her Way to Semi-Finals of Fox5 Talent Show

Stacy Antonel, on Fox5 San Diego's “Three Minutes to Stardom.”

Vocalist Stacy Antonel, who performs with the Velvet Cafe Band locally, has been belting her way through Fox5 San Diego’s Three Minutes to Stardom, and moves into the semi-finals Saturday.

Antonel has developed a following in Coronado, and is known, a bandmate said, as “a torch singer,” who can also “rock like Grace Slick.”  

The program airs at 7 p.m. on Fox5, Channel 5.

She’s competing for a $10,000 grand prize in the competition, which began last year.

Want to be part of her climb to the top? Antonel will next be performing in town at Coronado Boathouse 1887 Thursday and the Coronado Cays Yacht Club on March 15.
