Fairytales do come true. . . it happened to Paula Thompson, a Clarksdale, Mississippi high school student who came to Berklee this summer for the Five-Week Program on a full scholarship. (Publicist Allen Bush blogged about Paula here and here.) The singer was the first female Five-Week scholarship recipient from the Delta Blues Museum music program for youth.
Only 15 years old, Paula was a little nervous about coming to Boston by herself, Allen says, but by the end she was comfortable with Berklee and Berklee, well, loved her: She’ll be coming back next summer on another full scholarship, announced this week. And maybe after that. . . she can start to think about college?
