Rockfordians Inspiration Sensation finalists

Twelve finalists have been selected for Total Living Network TV51’s Inspiration Sensation live reality TV show, and two of the finalists are from Rockford—Rosemary Salinas, winner of TV51’s “Church Challenge 2005” at On the Waterfront, and, coincidentally, Rosemary’s husband, Bobby Salinas.

Both are 26 years old and are worship leaders at their church, River of Life Church of God.

The live competition will begin at 8 p.m., April 7, and air on regular broadcast channel 51 and Insight basic channel 15. The audience will choose who moves on by placing a toll-free call for their favorite contestant at the end of each show. The contestant with the least number of votes will be let go the following week. At the end of May, someone will walk away with a recording contract with Asone Sound Music Group, a wide variety of concert opportunities, and the title “Inspiration Sensation 2007.”

This is the fourth season of the award-winning program Inspiration Sensation. In 2005, Stephanie Goldsmith of Rockford won the competition. For more information, go to
