THE sweet sounds of voices from the Rose City serenaded the crowd at the Queensland Champion of Champions country music festival.
Flying the Warwick banner at the October 28-29 event at the Kedron Wavell Services Club, in Brisbane, were Erin and Keely Hilton , Emma Brosnan, Katie Dennis and Emma Siebenhausen.
Mrs Hilton said champion of champions was a culmination of the festival year and performers had to be invited.
"Entrants must have won or placed second at festivals during the year," she said.
"Year 8 Assumption College student Emma Brosnan entered in the juvenile female section.
"She went through to the finals and came third in her first year of competition.
"Keely Hilton and Emma Siebenhausen competed in the junior female section.
"Katie Dennis, Emma Siebenhausen and Keely then performed as a junior group called Belle for the first time."
Mrs Hilton said she also took to the stage.
"I performed with my daughter, Keely, in the senior duo section and we won," she said.
"We also qualified for the overall champion section but it was won by Justin Standley, who was recently voted off X Factor."
