For the 13th year, A Seasoned Affair has presented the Ms. Senior Jacksonville and Ms. Diva Pageant, bringing all the glory and beauty of aging with grace on the mainstage.
Contestants wowed nearly 300 audience members with their showmanship which included a display of talent and fashion in addition to a Q&A.
Pageant Director Kenyonn Demps, dubbed the contestants, the ‘spectacular seven,’ energized the audience with their opening number to the Jackson 5 hit Can You Feel It. The dynamic contestants age 50 – 74 energized the audience with their opening number to the Jacksonville 5 hit Can You feel It. The audience grooved and moved with the contestants and cheered them on with their talents, evening wear, and words of wisdom categories.
“What an amazing and exciting representation of mature women in our community,” said Demps. Every year, the pageant journey consists of interviews, networking, journaling, platform development and confidence rebuilding. This year, the contestants were encouraged to step more out of their comfort zone by making appearances, knowing their why, presenting their platforms and her-story.
