Holiday Pawn Songs is about more than creating entertaining music; for Cash America, it's a way to give back to the customers who depend on us to be there for them when times are good or bad.
The first-place winner, Joyce, was nearly overcome when she found out she had won.
"SuperPawn has been so good to me for so many years," she said. "I'm about to cry just from talking about it. I want you to know that I meant everything I said in my song. For me, this wasn't just about entering a contest. Thank you so much."
Second-place winner Alex will use his winnings to help fund his start-up TV channel, PrescriptionAM.
Third-place winner Corey uses Cash America to pursue his dream of making music:
"I have shopped with Cash America ever since I was four years old. All of my music equipment, including my Macbook, was purchased from them. They have looked out for me and my family for years. This song explains how Cash America has helped me create music to spread to the world: how I found the microphone of my dreams, along with more musical equipment, at Cash America," said Corey.
"A big thank you to all of my friends at the Cash America store on Altamesa Boulevard for always looking out for me… They’re all family in my eyes," he said.
Congratulations to the winners, and thank you to all participants for your hard work!
