Danika Wins National Contest


A Remsen native has been named the grand prize winner of a national contest.  Danika Portz of Nashville earns $25-thousand dollars for her song entry “House Becomes a Home” in the Nebraska Furniture Mart Theme Song Contest,   With more than 400 entries, the contest committee had the enormous task of selecting 10 semifinalists. Voting was then opened to the public to narrow it down to 5 finalists, with Danika Portz’s entry being selected as the $25,000 grand prize winner.  Danika says she is “beyond humbled, thrilled, and so grateful for this opportunity” and she is excited to hear her song on a national commercial.  Portz, who has opened for some of the biggest acts in the music industry has been described by Billboard Magazine as a songstress who “simply sounds like nobody else in Nashville these days.”
