Emily Ann Roberts signs Camille Clark’s autograph at the CTE Goes Live kick off held last Wednesday at Toyota Knoxville. Roberts won last year’s event and went on to place second in the television show The Voice. CTE Goes Live will be held on May 6 at Market Square, giving contestants from fifteen Knox County high schools the chance to compete vocally.
