Hi 2B Awards!
Katie Rose here, and I am honored to be chosen as the 1st 2B Awards online talent winner!! ( view winning video )

A little about me.. I was born and raised in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. I have a six year old daughter. My parents have been married for thirty five years and I have two brothers and one sister. I have been singing since I could talk for the most part.  I have been involved in chorus and I played piano.  Honestly, singing has been a secret passion of mine that I only shared with people I cared about up until about a year ago. 

I was encouraged to post some of my singing on Youtube, so I decided to try it. One of my videos was seen by someone who came across it on Youtube and It was recommended that I submit my video to the 2B Awards Show. I agreed honestly thinking that nothing would happen with the video. On March 1st I was called by the CEO of the 2B Awards, Robert Kenneth and was told I was the winner of the 2B Awards!!

My initial reaction was… I was in shock!  My six year old was measuring the living room for the pool she thought we could now get!! My sister being older and protective of me, thought this could be a possible scam. We decided to just sit on the idea until I received the money.

The following day I received a call from Mr. Kenneth again with my reference number to go pick my money up from the Western Union.  I was waiting in line with crabby old ladies with huge purses, thinking to myself, I hope they don’t hit me with those purses when I just held up the line to leave empty handed. To my disbelief I was given the thousand dollars and no purses were drawn!
Thank you so very much to everyone that voted for me and supported me along the way! To the staff of the 2B Awards for being so welcoming and making me feel like part of the family. To my daughter that sat through me singing songs over and over and occasionally hitting horrible notes!! I look forward to seeing this site grow! I also look forward to the next winner! Thanks Again!!

Katie Rose




To everyone at 2B Awards,

I want to thank you all for hosting a great contest at Terminal 110 in New Haven, CT.

The awards show and contest was run efficiently. The entire event was awesome and everything ran smoothly, from the program itself to the videotaping, the host, the crowd, and even the sound system! The staff for 2B AWARDS were extremely friendly and helpful. There were so many talented performers representing a wide variety of entertainment; from comedians, to rock bands, and vocalists singing songs from Frank Sinatra to Led Zeppelin. It made the evening extremely interesting and lots of fun. It was a great experience all around. I would highly recommend anyone to be a part of the show, either as a contestant or to have a great night out!

PS… Thanks to everyone who voted for me that evening and of course thanks to 2B AWARDS for the wonderful cash prize!
