Because of beauty queen Marlesa Ball.
After being crowned Miss Georgia in June of 1986, she advanced to the Miss America pageant, which was held in Atlantic City on September 13. (The competition was televised nationally via NBC.)
Marlesa didn’t end up winning, but her vocal performance of “Amazing Grace” did help her earn a spot in the top 10.
These days, Marlesa is living in Alabama with her husband and two sons. Here’s Marlesa’s website.
