Midland's Got Talent I

The Home and School team, led by Travis and Tina Finnegan, helped prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that Midland's Got Talent! During the January 23rd program, a large audience of friends, family, and school family enjoyed a variety of entertainment. The 26 different acts ranged from piano solos to stand-up comedy, with flutes, violins, skits, and even some karate thrown in for good measure.

In addition to the on-stage performers, the judging team of Drew Hickman, Naomi Bruette, and Pastor Mike Fenton added their own special flavor to the evening. Canada is still part of the British Commonwealth of Nations, and based on her accent, Ms. Bruette still retains those British roots!

Third place for the evening was awarded to the guys on the 7th & 8th grade basketball team. They presented a skit that was positively "lights out"; outlined in colored glow sticks, the guys did the limbo, jumped rope, and bounced around on stage - all in the dark.

The award for second place was claimed by triple-threat musician Erin Burke for her piano solo, Hawaiian Love Song. She also played her flute (with Lydia Svoboda) and violin (with Lisa Glenn).

The top prize of the evening went to Andrea Reed for her vocal solo My Immortal. During the second half of the program, Andrea also performed a Japanese version of Country Roads. She told the judges she wanted to sing a song in a different language, and Japanese seemed the easiest to learn!

Prior to the program, the class of 2011 served an Italian meal including salad, garlic bread, lasagna, macaroni and cheese, green beans, and a drink. Home and School provided dessert from 7:00-7:30pm and also during the intermission.

A great program, great food, great entertainers, and great organization all led to a enjoyable evening. We'll see you again next January for another episode of Midland's Got Talent!
