From the article:

“The Northern California Alumni Grand Sweepstakes Award for best overall performance was presented to the band Fine Print. The band, which performed its original song ?Move On,? was also awarded The UCLA Las Do?as Award for best band entry.

?I started laughing, I couldn?t believe it. ? I was not expecting it all, but I am so thankful,? said fourth-year ethnomusicology student and Fine Print vocalist Teira Lockhart Church. ?We all love jazz so much, so it was really wonderful for us to bring our love for jazz and soul music to the stage.? Students in Fine Print are: Chili Corder, Masai Marselin, Joel Manduke, Teira Church, Grant Milliken, Hugo Shiboski, Erik Shiboski, and Jacob Koransky.

In addition, First-year ethnomusicology student Priscillia Omon and fourth-year ethnomusicology student Alan McDonnell were awarded the Rose Bowl Bruins Award for best duet entry for the their performance of McDonnell?s original song, ?Who Cares.?

AND…just to round things out, Natalie Brainin from Ethnomusicology won the award for ?best solo entry.?
