Best Kansas Citian 

Ida McBeth

It's only fitting that Ida McBeth would win the race for Best Kansas Citian; the highlight of her year was her participation in ceremonies connected to another election. McBeth, perennial Best Female Vocalist winner at Pitch Weekly's Klammies, performed the national anthem prior to Al Gore's acceptance speech at the Democratic convention, which she described as "the biggest gig I've ever participated in." Earlier this summer, McBeth sang at Kansas City's 150th birthday bash at Arrowhead Stadium, and her 1999 disc, Special Request, which features her graceful takes on such standards as Bill Withers' "Kissing My Love" and "Who Is She (and What Is She to You)?," remains a steady seller. McBeth's high-profile showcase in Los Angeles confirmed what her hometown fans have long suspected -- this unfailingly polite and immensely talented vocalist is perhaps the finest possible delegate to represent Kansas City in front of a national audience.
