Getting up on stage in front of millions of viewers is many singers’ dream come true — for one Lynbrook resident, that dream will be televised Monday night.

Andrea O’Neill and her collegiate a capella group, the University of Delaware Deltones, will make their debut on NBC’s hit show “The Sing-Off” tonight in the second half of the season three premier.
