Savanna Sondgeroth, of Spring Valley, (pictured center) sang her way to win the title of ROCKSTAR 2024 last night at Starved Rock Lodge. After finishing in second place twice before, this was Sondgeroth’s year! In addition to her victory, she was also voted the finale’s Jessica Strauch State Farm Insurance “Fan Favorite” which gave her $100 to add to her $500 cash award and a 1st place trophy. Sondgeroth performed Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” for her song of choice. Contestants also had to perform an 80’s Rock song, followed by a “Freestyle” round in which each contestant composed a song from provided lyrics they were given and add their own melody. Monica Archie (Ottawa, pictured left) took 2nd place and Josh Stacy (Ottawa, pictured right) took home the 3rd place trophy. Chelsey Manau (LaSalle, pictured far left) and Bob Tieman (Peru, pictured far right) also made it to the final round of the contest. Starved Rock Media’s Jaimie London (WOLF/WAJK) was the Emcee of ROCKSTAR, which has been an annual favorite for over 20 years at Starved Rock Lodge.
