Congrats go out to 20-year-old singer-songwriter Olivia Quillio, who took first place and walked off with $4,000 in prizes at Friday night’s Garage to Glory competition in front of a sold-out crowd at the College of Saint Rose.

Andy Gregory explains his photograph: “This shot was taken of Garage to Glory II winner Olivia Quillio of Troy,
