Billy V: Local Girls Make Good Nationally, More Star Wars?

Posted: Updated:

(Hawaii News Now) - The third annual GRAMMY Foundation® and MusiCares® Teens! Make Music Contest was held and the winners announced for their creative interpretation of the dangers and impact of drug and alcohol use. Hawaii natives, Colby Benson, a senior at Mililani High School, and Haley Michelle Kagimoto, student at Punahou School, are the second place winners. Their song titled, "Change Who We'll Become," is inspired by friends and family faced by substance abuse. Their powerful lyrics, "we can rise up once we've fallen, change who we'll become," highlight how those who have struggled with addiction can find hope in recovery.

They have won the GRAMMY Awards backstage experience, their musical entries posted on the GRAMMY365® Website and the MTV Act blog, iPads with the GarageBand app; an opportunity to release a record with Iron Ridge Road Recordings*, through Clarity Way, a drug and alcohol rehab facility in Hanover, Pennsylvania; a small cash award courtesy of the Visions Adolescent Treatment Center in Malibu, California; and a certificate from the GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares.

Now that Disney owns the rights to make more Star Wars movies, the plan is to make not only Episodes VII, VIII and IX, but also "stand alone" movies about certain Star Wars characters. Rumored to star in the first stand-alone movie: Yoda.
