APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. - EntSun -- Cole Denham, a junior at Apache Junction High School, 2525 S. Ironwood Drive in Apache Junction won "audience favorite" in the recent AJ Kid's Idol talent  competition.

Denham sang "Save Myself" by Ed Sheeran. He said he chose the song because he relates to the lyrics and also because the music is a good fit for his vocal range. Denham has a heart for the arts and is involved in varsity choir and in the drama department at AJHS. He plans on being a part of the next production at the high school in April.

He hopes to pursue a career in the performing arts professionally and has had the secret desire to become a famous singer since he was four years old. After graduation Denham would like to sing and act professionally. He is a big fan of the Spider Man movies and hopes to play the role of Peter Parker someday. If fame eludes him, his backup plan is to design video games.

In the meantime Denham's talents have been in demand locally. He recently sang the national anthem at the State of the City on Feb. 12.

"I'd really like to thank Paul Lanphear (theater director) Andie Chung (choir director) and Zach Lundquest (PAC coordinator) for being the amazing people that they are and helping us out with all the performances."
