Sonora, CA — Out of an original field of 120, Sonora High´s 15 year old sophomore Tessa Silva has reached the final nine in the Modesto Bee Young Idol contest.
Based on the number of votes cast, one member of that “final 10” is eliminated each Wednesday. Only one vote per week per candidate is permitted. After a candidate is eliminated, a fresh vote starts for the next week.
