I am happy as a schoolkid on summer vacation to report that I was a winner of the prestigious Wildflower Art and Music Song Contest in Richardson, TX. As well as being named a winner I also was awarded the "People's Choice,": named after the great Michael Terry. I am more than humbled and very honored.
From Trespass Music:
Marc Douglas Berardo has won the Michael Terry People’s Choice Award at the Wildflower Arts and Music Festival Songwriter Competition. Kendra Terry, an avid volunteer and widow of Michael Terry says “The award is named for my late husband who was a longtime manager of Uncle Calvin’s Coffeehouse in Dallas. Michael was also involved with Wildflower as the Songwriter Stage Volunteer Manager.” Kendra took on the Songwriter Stage Volunteer Manager position in 2011 when her husband passed away from cancer.
