Spokane’s Allen Stone reaches finals of ‘American Song Competition’

Hometown hero and Spokane soul singer Allen Stone made it to the finale of NBC’s “American Song Contest” Monday night representing the state of Washington. He even won the most points in the competition among his peers in jury voting, but with viewer votes added, Stone dropped from first to fifth place.

Stone, who started his music career in Seattle, prerecorded his performance for the otherwise live-taped finale so he could be with his mother, who has cancer.
