Cole Denham Wins "Audience Favorite" in AJ Kid's Idol Talent Competition
By: Apache Junction Unified School District
Denham sang "Save Myself" by Ed Sheeran. He said he chose the song because he relates to the lyrics and also because the music is a good fit for his vocal range. Denham has a heart for the arts and is involved in varsity choir and in the drama department at AJHS. He plans on being a part of the next production at the high school in April.
He hopes to pursue a career in the performing arts professionally and has had the secret desire to become a famous singer since he was four years old. After graduation Denham would like to sing and act professionally. He is a big fan of the Spider Man movies and hopes to play the role of Peter Parker someday. If fame eludes him, his backup plan is to design video games.
In the meantime Denham's talents have been in demand locally. He recently sang the national anthem at the State of the City on Feb. 12.
"I think the performing arts department is an incredible community of students and staff who really do the best that they can do in every performance,"
