Angie points out a recent post on Atlanta Magazine’s website noting that former Oakhurst Chef Calavino’s wife, Doria Roberts, is currently running second regionally in the Grammys’ “Gig of a Lifetime” contest. Says Richard Eldredge on his blog…
As of this morning, Atlanta singer/songwriter/baker supreme Doria Roberts is this close to scoring her dream gig — a live performance at next month’s 55th annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles. Via its Facebook page, the Grammys folks have announced its “Grammy Live: The Gig of a Lifetime” contest. Roberts is a nominee in the South Atlantic competition. The winner and band will be flown to the left coast and offered a chance to perform in front of music industry A-listers on Grammy weekend.
After Roberts and her wife Urban Cannibals chef Calavino Donati mobilized their impressive fan base on Facebook and Twitter over the weekend, Roberts has now pulled into second place with just two days of voting left before a winner is announced. The singer’s fans can vote up to 10 times a day.
