A Cappella Gold wins jingle contest

Four San Diego County women have harmonized their way to fame by winning a national online competition. Of five finalist groups, the A Cappella Gold Sweet Adeline quartet attracted the most votes from the public throughout the summer. Thus it has won the national Oreo cookie jingle contest and its $10,000 prize.

The singers – Kimberly Hulbert of San Diego, Elizabeth Gorton of Julian, Tomi McEvoy of Escondido and Susan Lamb of Vista – have been performing together for nine years. Now they'll head to Hollywood to record an Oreo radio commercial that will begin airing nationally early next year.

Even though it wasn't “American Idol,” the singers will get to meet “Idol” judge and record producer Randy Jackson at the official winner's ceremony in Los Angeles next week.
