Congratulations to Statesville resident Karla Causey, who won Harris Teeter's third-annual jingle contest.
As most of you probably know, the grocery chain invites shoppers to submit their own versions of its "My Harris Teeter" jingle. Causey's rendition was selected and recorded in a professional studio. It is scheduled to air during the season finale of "American Idol" later this year. Causey has no formal music training and is completing her arts degree at Mitchell Community College. As for her winnings, “I am going to use the $10,000 to build a platform, that will allow me to bring more exposure to my music,” she said.
