November 8, 2014 was an evening to remember at the La Vernia High School Auditorium where LV Shoestring Stage Productions’ 5th Annual Wilson County’s Got Talent show kicked off. 16 acts performed but in the end there could only be 1 winner and 2 runner ups. The three judges, Fiona Gorostiza, Julie Dahlberg and Reverend Steve Curry, had a difficult decision to make with so much talent on hand for the evening. All aspects of the acts such as talent, originality, presentation and perhaps most importantly, their connection with the audience had to be taken into consideration. When all of the ballots were tabulated by our 3 judges, the results came in as follows: 3rd place was A la Carte, a female quartet who are members of the Sweet Adeline singing group, performed I Don’t Know Enough About You; 2nd place was 16 year old LeAnn Yelton who gave a beautiful performance of Music of the Night from Phantom of The Opera; and in 1st place with their original concept song performance explaining to all of us that you only need to know 4 cords to have a hit song, Ignite got the audience rocking and cheering with their song medley.
The audience that was in attendance had to be the real winners of the night as they got to join in the fun of listening and watching the competitors, the La Vernia High School Honey Bears Dance Team perform, being attacked by the HEB workers’ flash mob dance to the video HAPPY and then the finale’ of God Bless America performed for the veterans in attendance.
Two lucky people each won a beautiful gift basket; one of which the proceeds will help fund the new high school scholarship established by LV Shoestring Stage Productions. Despite a couple of technical snafu’s that seems to always happen at live performance shows, the overall evening should be graded an A for AWESOME!!
Look for LV Shoestring Stage Production’s next event which will be an original play written by Shelley Henderson entitled, Bubba’s B & B, a ‘who done it’ comedy set to hold auditions in January 2015. LV Shoestring Stage Productions would love for you to be a part of this funny play so stayed tuned for future audition dates.
