Nederland native Tim Foust and his group Home Free win season four of "The Sing-Off"

NEDERLAND -

A star is born and he's from right here in Southeast Texas, and starting Tuesday, his music group's songs can be found on I-Tunes or Amazon.

Tim Foust and his country vocal band Tim Foust won season four of "The Sing-Off" Monday night.

Cheers erupted from about three hundred of Foust's family, friends and supporters when Home Free became the winning a cappella group in the show's season finale, which aired on KJAC, Your NBC.

The big crowd gathered at the Nederland High School cafeteria, and Foust himself a Nederland native joined them for a watch party.

The finale was pre-taped, so Foust, his mother, his aunt and former music teacher knew he had won, but they kept it  secret, until it was revealed to the entire nation Monday.

By winning "The Sing-Off", Foust and Home Free win $100,000 and a Sony Music recording contract.

After his victory became public, Foust told us, "This whole thing has felt so amazing from the start.  All the support I've received and to be here and be a part of this was really cool."

The third time was definitely a charm for Southeast Texas.  The area has had two local singers make us proud in nationally televised singing competitions, Jasper's Michael Sarver and Woodville's Kree Harrison, both on American Idol.

But both fell short of the top spot, Sarver made the top ten, Harrison was runner-up. 

In addition to the money and recording contract, Foust and Home Free will go on a concert tour starting in mid-February.

Before then, however, he'll return to his hometown, and Home Free will hold a concert at Nederland High School's Performing Arts Center.

That's scheduled for February 3rd, 2014.

Foust, who's vocal range, captivated the judges, credits his mother, Dena Foust, for bringing out his singing skills when she would sing to him when he was just a child.

He says Central Middle School music teacher Rene Klose helped him perfect his talent.

Both women were there with Foust at the watch party for the celebration.
