It was a celebration that spoke of pre-star power. A parade and concert to honor Jena Irene Asciutto captivated thousands of fans Saturday, May 10th. Asciutto’s hometown, Farmington Hills, Michigan, was in party mode. This star power pictorial of fans and well wishers represented all facets of the public.

From her chorus teacher Dr. Sheri Jaffurs, her brother Nick, family, friends, mentors, teachers, Barry Brickner, mayor, to police, fire, emergency crews, local media, Oakland County Representative L. Brooks Patterson, and American Idol TV show stagehands, orchestrated a memorable bash. And the weather could not have cooperated more ─ blue skies, 75°, and just enough puffy white clouds to make this dream a reality.

Her professionalism in the midst of so much attention, outstanding! Her presence ─ down to earth. Her voice ─ impeccable. Everyone reveled in the drunkenness of this rare afternoon delight. You can revel in the celebration too. Enjoy the accompanying pictorial that not even local media could capture. The next competition is set for Wednesday, May 14th. If Jena should win a contract she would be bound to do covers not her own material for the initial period.
