USS ENTERPRISE, At sea -- As contestants in the singing competition aboard the deployed aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN 65) brace themselves for the votes on their selection of 80’s music that will determine the participants for the next round, Enterprise Sailors have the opportunity to cast their votes for the biggest stars of the stage. Next week, contestants will show off their mastery of music from the 90s.

“True Colors”

“I think I did alright. I got a little mixed up in the middle, but apart from that, I think I was pretty good.”

CTT2 Matthew Armstrong

AO3 Joshua Jones

“I feel like I should have prepared better, but I got it together in the end. If I get the chance to sing again, I’ll blow them away.”

“ I think I did alright. Lt. Pohnel said it took him back to the day. Seeing the smiles on everyone’s faces made me feel alright. “

ABEAN Christian Lofton

ET2 Sheila Perrick

“I think the criticism hit it pretty well. I kinda messed up with the beginning. I didn’t practice enough with it.”

“I changed my song last night and shouldn’t have. I had thought (my first song) would be flexing the rules.”

OS3 Joshua Towe

CS3 Elizabeth Precius

“I was horrible. I think (the judges) were a little bit too fair - they could have been a lot more rough on me.”

“I don’t think I was the worst, but I didn’t do as well as I would have liked. I’m going to do better next week.”

ABFAN Luis Cabrera

AT2 Willie Cochran

“I did alright until I forgot the words again. Next week I can sing something that I can vibe with a bit more.”

“I think I did ok. I think I entertained the crowd. I plan to pick a song next week that will, hopefully, show my vocal talent.”

“Have I Told You Lately”

“Open Arms”

“Fishin’ in the Dark”

“Rock and Roll Band”

“White Wedding”

“Material Girl”


“Lovin’ Happens”

Big ‘E’ Idol will be replayed on SITE TV Tuesday and Wednesday on channel 5. MWR will send an email Tuesday giving you a chance to vote for your favorite Big ‘E’ Idol. Don’t miss your chance to vote!

Graham Harrison- Currituck, NC

AWR3 (NAC/AW) Harrison, a sea and strike combat air crewman, scheduling petty officer and rescue swimmer for Helicopter Anti-submarine Squadron (HS) 11, says he joined the Navy four years ago to better himself and travel the world. Harrison says the most rewarding part of his job is training and qualifying in a “demanding field” and the job satisfaction he gets from teamwork. Graham’s future goals reflect his personality- he says he wants to “do the best and be the best no matter what job I do.” In his spare time, Harrison likes to work out, particularly in crossfit, and also enjoys stamp collecting.

HM3 Johnson, a general duty corpsman in Enterprise’s medical department, joined the Navy to “travel and see the world. I also wanted to go to school.” She says the most rewarding part of her job is helping people. Johnson has future plans on “going to school and making ranks. I want a family one day, too.” When she returns from deployment, Johnson would like to travel and spend time with her family.
