Caressa Cameron is the new Miss America 2010

Congrats to Caressa Cameron from Virginia...Last night she became the 89th woman and the 8th BLACK woman (if you count Suzette Charles stepping in to fill Vanessa Williams shoes) to be crowned Miss America. The 22 year old broadcast journalism student TOTALLY blew away 53 hopefuls by belting out Beyonce's "Listen" from Dreamgirls and by telling parents that the way to combat childhood obesity was to turn off the TV & Video games and GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY! (TOTALLY agree with that advice....remember when kids did that EVERY day?). She also won a $50,000 (US) scholarship.

Btw....LOVED her from the minute she put on that YELLOW evening gown...Awesome!

Continued success to you sister!

I missed the pageant, but as soon as I got in I looked up the results on the internet and I was thrilled to see that this beautiful Black woman had taken the crown! I'll have to youtube her performance of "Listen". Congrats Caressa!
