Brooklyn's 4th Senior Idol

and the winner is... Nunzio Franzese!

October 2nd was a night to remember! The audience was packed with hundreds of people cheering and screaming for their favorite singer! Twelve finalists performed singing great tunes such as My Way, It's Impossible, Your Cheating Heart and the winning song was Mack the Knife.

There were people from all over the city cheering for family and friends. They came from Staten Island, Manhattan, Queens, Dyker, Midwood, Canarsie and Babylon.

This event started 4 years ago as a fundraiser for local Bay Ridge AARP Chapter #5055 and now has become a fabulous community event that we all look forward to each year and the talent gets better and better.
