PORTLAND, Ore. — The KGW Sunrise Superstars competition is going on throughout the summer and voters have selected this week's winner.
Singer Robert Jordon Jr., from Vancouver, was named the winner with nearly 70% of the votes. Three days after he was diagnosed with lung failure, he started to write a song called "Just not ready to give up."
Jordan competed against Steve Mantelli, who is from Beaverton, is a former recording artist who had several songs on Billboard's "100 Hot County Songs" list back in the 1980s.
Each Tuesday through August 16, two talented KGW Sunrise viewers will be selected for the competition and you can vote for who you'd most like to see make it all the way to the final round.
