Column: Standing by Angie Miller


“Be yourself” is advice we’ve all heard before and most of us can benefit from at some point in our lives. But most of us don’t have to face the task, square-on and at a young age, with all of America watching!

Yet Miller, ever sweet and gutsy, handles the pressure well. Bright-eyed, she soaks up the judges’ advice and pulls out all the stops to show voters why she’s ready to be the next “American Idol.”

Of course, Beverly folks don’t need convincing. They’re standing by their hometown girl as she stands by herself on a national — even world — stage to advance her dreams.

Go, Angie! Whatever happens in the coming weeks, Beverly is with you!
