Amazing news! I am no longer a finalist but a winner! I won Rising Star 2014 at the BTS Red Carpet awards in NOLA!! It's quite an honor and also a tad humbling. I want to thank everyone who supported me, advised me, comforted me when the rejections poured in, and celebrated my successes!

Three Things You Didn't Know About Kimber Leigh Wheaton

1) I am a video game addict, have been for years. One of my favorite things to do in high school was go to an arcade and trounce all the guys who thought girls couldn't play games. Each person in my household has their own game console because we don't share well with others. My favorite games are RPG and strategy. I own enough video games to open a second hand store (that is if I was willing to part with them). There are two things I don't leave the house without: my Kindle and my 3DS.

2) I love to sing, and it's an integral part of my life. Singing elevates my mood and makes me flourish. I suppose it's like living with Snow White for my poor family. Yes, I do sing constantly when at home. I've also been known to sing or hum in inappropriate places such as Target. While I haven't had much in the way of formal training, I did train with two former members of the New York Metropolitan Opera once a week for a couple months. I learned more in those few lessons than I did from years in musical theater.

3) I love cars! My cars have always been my babies. My first car was a Mustang that I loved dearly. After that, I went through a Daytona and a Camaro until I was forced into a family car. I got a copper Murano which featured the 350Z engine—we called it the pumpkin carriage. Man, I loved that SUV. For a mom-mobile it was hot. My latest baby is truly my best, though. Three years ago I got the 45th Anniversary edition Camaro. I named him Sesshomaru after InuYasha's older brother because he's beautiful on the outside but a beast on the inside.
