A soldier from San Marino needs the public’s support to help make his wife the next rising star.
United States Army Pfc. Evan Robin is stationed in Germany and his wife Isabelle Robin has made it to the Finals of the Army’s singing competition “Operation Rising Star” at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio.
“She is really talented and I believe everyone will enjoy watching her,” Evan said.
“I’m so excited to be here and to be part of Operation Rising Star 2015,” Isabelle said. “The team is just awesome and we have a lot of fun.”
She said she’s chosen the first two songs that she will sing as “Listen” by Beyonce and “Out of the Blue” by Delta Goodrem.
Isabelle needs votes to win the competition, as she is one of 12 finalists.
“Half of the votes are from the judges and half of the votes are cast online,” Evan explained.
The show will be broadcast on www.oprisingstars.com on Nov. 29 and Dec. 1, 3 & 5 at 7 a.m. Pacific Time. Voting is open for 24 hours after each show and the public can vote as often as they like. The video will remain online after it airs.
