Duluth's own singer-songwriter Rachael Kilgour is in an international songwriting competition.

Her song "Will You Marry Me" is one of 10 songs chosen in the entire Midwest for the Mountain Stage New Song Contest. If she wins in her region, she'll advance to the international competition in New York this October.

Kilgour wrote this song in honor of her grandparents' 60-year marriage. She also has a new three-song EP out, "Whistleblower's Manifesto: Songs for a New Revolution."
