'Team Joshua Peavy' supported in Worth County

WORTH CO., GA (WALB) - A contestant on the ABC show Rising Star is getting a lot of support all over south Georgia.

Douglas native Joshua Peavy is in the Top 6 on the show.

His great-aunt, a Worth County Sheriff's Office employee, displays her 'Team Joshua Peavy' shirt at work whenever she can.

She says Peavy's family is supporting his journey on show.

"I can't wear it to work, but I can keep it on my chair and when folks ask about it, I can share the information with them. We're extremely proud. So any way we can spread the word, we try to spread it," said Felicia Smith. 

A gofundme account is set up to help with donations.

Team Joshua Peavy t-shirts are available for purchase.

Another south Georgian, Tifton native Austin French, is also one of the final six contestants.
