The event is organized by McKenna Sessions, a senior a Lynnwood High School, with the goal of sharing her love of singing with others in her community.
“I wanted to have an event where we could give these young adults who have big hearts for music a chance to express themselves with song on stage,” Sessions said.
Lynnwood Idol participants are all current students from the Edmonds School District’s VOICE program, which is a transition program for young adults with disabilities.
The event on Jan. 20 will take place at Alderwood Community Church (3403 Alderwood Mall Blvd. in Lynnwood) and run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Admission is free, but donations will be accepted. All proceeds will go to The Arc of Snohomish County, an organization that serves people with disabilities and their families.
