Gallatin, TN – July  25, 2011 – Cissy Crutcher from Gallatin was recently announced as one of 23 Semi-Finalists from 17 countries in Avon Voices, Avon's first-ever global singing talent search.  Cissy has already advanced through three selection rounds, including two public voting rounds which drew over 2.2 million worldwide votes.
Cissy recently joined her fellow Semi-Finalists for a once-in-lifetime trip to Hollywood, California to record their final performance videos for the last rounds of voting for Avon Voices.  The Semi-Finalists received voice and performance coaching from music industry veterans and celebrity judges Maia, a Colombian singing star, and David Pack, a Grammy award-winning singer/composer and music producer.  The contender group also participated in professional photo shoots and exclusive Avon makeovers.
The panel of music luminaries making up the celebrity judging panel include: Fergie, six-time Grammy award winner; Diane Warren, legendary songwriter; Natasha Bedingfield, Grammy nominated singer/songwriter; Lea Salonga, Filipina singer and actress; Valeriya, Russian singing sensation; Delta Goodrem, Australian Artist of the Decade; Sheila E., breakthrough, Grammy-nominated female percussionist; Ivete Sangalo, Brazil’s biggest pop star; David Pack and Maia.

Cissy was originally named as one of the 178 Avon Voices contenders from over 6,000 applicants in March.   Ultimately, up to 10 Global Finalists will travel from around the world to New York City to attend the Avon Foundation for Women Annual Gala in New York City on November 2nd – the setting for the much anticipated announcement of the Avon Voices two winners – one an Avon Representative.  These Finalists will meet with the acclaimed celebrity judges and record an Avon Voices anthem written by Diane Warren, which will debut live at the Gala and will be available for purchase online in certain countries.
