From Losing to Jojo to Replacing Bovo: The Katherine Cue Story
1997 - Cue is crowned Little Miss Hialeah. Her job duties apparently involved following Raul Martinez around in a sash. In that she has experience unquestionably following a mayor, she might be just as qualified as anyone else on the council.
1999 - Being installed on a "serious" political body sure must be a thrill for any 21-year-old. But that wasn't Cue's original preferred destination. No, it was "stardom." As a 12-year-old, she competed on
Cue ended up being defeated by Jojo, the also-ran teen singer. (Here's a wonderful cover of one of her songs.) Moments before being informed of her loss, Cue expressed how much she enjoyed visiting Russia, but to her credit, she didn't claim to be able to see it from her house.
2004 - Cue was fourth runnerup for Miss Teen Florida.
2005 - A Katherine Cue is credited on Discogs as the vocalist for a remake of local one-hit wonders Soul Fource's hit "Set U Free."
2006 - Cue competed in Miss Florida USA.
Circa 2006 - Cue is signed to 76 Label and apparently releases a song called "Hold Up." That's her on the website in the early-Britney Spears-style pigtails and half-shirt.
Circa 2007 - Cue becomes a city employee and is eventually promoted to serve as the mayor's education liaison.
Tomorrow - She'll be officially appointed as a real, live council member!
2009 - If Cue wants to continue serving on the city council, she'll have to go up for electon. She has already indicated she will, and knowing Hialeah, we think it's possible she could win, unless Jojo throws her hat into the ring.
2010 - Estimated date of Cue's college graduation from St. Thomas University.
