Former Miss Freeport, Michelle Maves-Delgenio is a contestant on the nationally broadcasted $100,000 pyramid game show that will air on ABC Sunday night.
Delgenio now lives in New York, but was born and bred in Stephenson County and graduated from Freeport High School. She’s known to be a talented singer and started performing at a young age. Delgenio says shes excited she went through the process of being on the show.
“I was three years old when I first started performing. I remember always singing. I’d watch Annie and the Wizard of Oz and I memorized the whole thing,” said Delgenio. “My show was the last to film. I was there to the bitter end I was there all day and the actually filming was only 45 minutes.”
Delgenio has sang with Shania Twain at the former Metro Centre and performed several times at Rockford’s First Night. The show beings at 8 p.m. Central Time on July 8th.
