Tony Zevoglis is the 2013 Senior Idol of the Shepherd's Center of Chesterfield 3rd annual competition. He wowed the audience with a rendition of "MY Way" done in Elvis Presley style which pleased the audience and the judges.
Tony, a former mayor of Hopewell, said he started singing on a dare and attributed his Marine training and political skills to his success.
More stories, pictures and video will be published as they become available.
Please be sure to congratulate Tony on his victory.
Zevgolis said he started singing regularly after being dared about 10 years ago at a social event that featured karaoke.
Zevgolis, a former mayor of Hopewell, said that as a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, he couldn’t turn down a challenge; and as a politician, he wasn’t afraid of an audience.
“Have you forgotten I’m a politician?” he remembers telling the challenger, “You think I’m afraid of that mic?”
Zevgolis hit both the high and low notes, in Elvis Presley form, of “My Way.”
Zevgolis sported a red bow tie and cummerbund, with a white tux-style shirt and slicked-back white hair. And he wasn’t afraid to throw in some subtle leg movements during his performance.
“It was a very clear choice for us,” said Savannah Lane, the 2012 Miss Chesterfield County Fair, and one of four judges in the American Idol-style competition.
