Region 8 Girl Performs on CBS's "Early Show"

JANUARY 8, 2007 - Posted at 7:42 a.m. CST

 

MELBOURNE, Ark. (AP) - Melbourne's 15-year-old harmonicist Kaleena Hutchins is to appear on national television this morning. A video of Hutchins is to be shown on the ``Living Room Live: Kids' Edition'' talent contest segment of CBS's ``The Early Show.''

Competing against two other performers, Hutchins will try to win viewers' votes with her rendition of the ``William Tell Overture.'' A win there will put her in the finals with a chance to play live on ``The Early Show'' in New York City. Votes can be cast on the program's web site until Wednesday.

Hutchins first picked up a harmonica around the time she learned to walk and talk. It was just pretend then. When she got older, she learned to play and has competed in numerous competitions and even recorded a CD with family and friends.
