The Capital Star Talent Search 

by Susan Mangatal




















































The Capital Star Talent Competition was excellent.  For the 2nd week the Competition was "tight", due to the massive amount of talent here in metropolitan DC. 

As a judge and using the judging criteria that One Heart Charities has stipulated, I feel it is important to let you know specifically what I am focusing on.  For me personally, the bottom line of my judging is based on "STAR Quality."  When I say star quality, I mean The moment a performer walks out on stage they begin to shine and  glitter.  That's "STAR QUALITY", most importantly their performance must be exceptional.  Some of the things I focus on is how comfortable the performer is on stage, how they deliver their performance, and it's important for me to also focus on their appearance.  STAR QUALITY IS WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR, and by the outstanding talent I have witnessed these past few weeks there are certainly many here in this Washington, Maryland, Virginia areas.

The performers again for the 2nd week made it difficult for us (Mr. Eddie Schaffer and myself) to come up with the 1st place, 2nd place and 3rd place winners, simply because they all were very good.


1st place Winner - Cordell "C.A." Wright

Cordell "C.A." Wright utilizes his many life experiences towards his success as an author, poet, human rights crusader and educator.  

2nd Place Winner - Mr. Eric Townsend

Eric Townsend is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer in the mold of Prince or Lenny Kravitz.  He has consistently championed HIV/AIDS prevention through musical events and business donations.  Known first for his musical versatility and lyricism, Townsend's repertoire includes over 100 original songs that span seven CDs.

3rd Place Winner - Marcus Brown

Marcus "DooDoo" Brown a native of Washington DC became interested in stand up comedy after keeping all of his co-workers in the back of the staff meetings, all of the people sitting in hearing distance at church, and anyone inquiring "how Life has been?" in stitches minutes after talking.  No matter the situation Mr. Brown is good for laughs

I must briefly mention some contestants who made it difficult for me to make a decision.  Mr.  Brian Glover (singer), delivered his rendition of "Unchained Melody" with ease and confidence.  Ms. Nancy Wisniewski "did  wonders to Etta James "At Last", and her singing reminded me a lot of the late great  Patsy Kline, and Mr. G. Hector was indeed "Tall, Dark and Handsome (per his bio), but he forgot to mention smooth and talented.  All three are truly talented and has lots of potential. 

To those who competed please remember you all were winners, and don't forget you will have a chance to compete again.  Talk with founder/owner of One Heart Charities Ms. Toni Samuels for all the Details.   For anyone who think they can be the next capital star also contact Toni Samuels for all the details 703-405-7061 or

Happy Halloween to all.  I am taking a break from my commentary this week, because I am busy at work on a lot of exciting things to come here at Arious Entertainment.  Those of you who are in the DC Metropolitan area don't forget to come out and support the Capital Star Competition, because without your support local talent will fade away and new talent will not be exposed here in DC.  It was nice to see the crowd had doubled this week, but that still is not enough, we need all of you to come out and support these exciting artists!!! Look out for this past week (week 2) video clip of all the performers at TV 2.htm


We send out condolences again to  Barry, Mikey, Cheryl , Shelly and the entire Hillocks Family on the loss of their Dad Ricky.  I feel your pain, I went through the same thing last year and you never heal, that loss stays with you forever.  Just continue with what he started, he was a pillar in this community.
