Battle of the Boroughs: Staten Island Winner Leila Hegazy

Battle of the Boroughs

Sunday July 14 2024 • 7:04pm - 7:04pm ET

2014 Staten Island Battle of the Boroughs winner Leila Hegazy

Nine undiscovered musical acts from Staten Island competed on The Greene Space’s stage during a live concert on May 2, 2014. Then, voters chose their top five. Now, after a week of voting, there’s only one act standing.

The 2014 Staten Island representative in our Battle of the Boroughs is…Leila Hegazy! The singer-songwriter moves on to the final showdown, the Ultimate Battle of the Boroughs on June 27. She’ll compete against the other borough winners — including Manhattan’s 5j Barrow, Queen’s Annika and the Bronx’s Royal Khaoz — for bragging rights and prizes, including a showcase performance at the world famous Apollo Theater Amateur Night.

Congrats to all the acts who competed.

Next stop in the Battle of the Boroughs: Brooklyn takes the stage on Friday, June 6.
