NPR named a new Tiny Desk Contest winner. Here are our favorite Charlotte-area submissions
On Tuesday, NPR announced singer/songwriter Alisa Amador as the winner of the 2022 Tiny Desk Contest. Here at WFAE, we wanted to acknowledge some of best Charlotte-area submissions this year — and announce our local favorite!
We assembled a small panel of judges here at WFAE who watched and listened to dozens of submissions from our region. We were not unanimous in our decision, with quite a few videos garnering first place votes. We had to resort to a ranking system to determine an overall favorite.
In the end, Charlotte's ReeCee Raps took home top honors for us by a nose! This band is tight, and even though she’s sitting down, ReeCee is a commanding presence. This recording sounds like it could be on the radio right now.
There were quite a few submissions we enjoyed this year. Here's a sampling of some of the best.
