Ada Chan, New U of T Idol

Ada ChanAfter a speculator performance on Thursday night, Ada Chan was named the 2013 U of T Idol.

During the five months of the contest, Ada faced some stiff competition, most notably from Daniel Oh who was runner up in the March 21st finale. In addition to a cash prize, Ada will complete a demo CD in a 10-hour studio session sponsored by CIUT 89.5FM. If you missed Ada’s performance, you’ll have the chance to see her next year as part of the Stages series. As runner up, Daniel Oh will receive a cash prize and an opening act booking. And there is life after Idol. Patrick Simeon, who walked away with the title last year, has just launched his first CD.

The Hart House Music Committee wishes to thank all the talented participants and devoted supporters of 2013 U of T Idol. A special shout out goes to our dynamic and wonderfully talented house band, The Uplifters led by Dave Clarke. Special thanks to Freda Zhang our host and coordinator of U of T Idol and our student judging panel: Ryan, Erin Sean and Chelsea.

We’ll be back again next fall and maybe this time YOU will be the next U of T Idol.
