+ Youngster debuts star-quality talent
Kudos to Emma Katz, daughter of Temple Beth Israel Rabbi Jonathan and Marty Katz.
In a recent Access Broadway regional competition, held in Orlando, Emma’s solo rendition of “If My Friends Could See Me Now,” from the musical “Sweet Charity,” won a platinum medal and first place in her division, Debut Category, with kids ages 9 to 12 singing up-tempo songs. More than 225 young people participated.
Emma also competed in three group numbers, one of which won a platinum medal and best performance in its category. Her studio, Spotlight Kids, in Sarasota, won the Best Studio Award of the 17 that competed.
