On Tuesday, April 15 Kearny High School held a talent show. A talent show is where participants perform talents of singing, dancing, drumming, martial arts or other activities. Mark Webber the Kearny Band Director was excited and hopes the students that have participated have had fun with this activity.
Two of the participants in the talent show are Allison Baca and Josie Sullivan. Both young ladies have beautiful voices and planned to sing in the show. Allison said, “The song I plan to sing is one I feel comfortable singing it doesn’t involve screaming in the microphone or anything like that.” Allison has stage fright. Allison said, “I enjoy art and the ROTC best here at Kearny.” Allison did participate in the talent show last year and had fun with it, she hopes this program continues. Allison plans to attend Central Arizona College after high school on the Promise For The Future Program majoring in art and specializing in Graphic Design/Animation.
Joslin (Josie) Sullivan said, “I love to sing and when I am older I plan to sing, I just want to try and show people what I can do.” Josie also said, “I love going to school here in Kearny and my favorite class is Environmental Science.” Josie has participated in other schools talent shows where she has had to audition and advance from the audition to participate, in which she did. Josie has even performed a Spanish song previously. Josie would like to continue her education after high school with a focus on song writing or singing.
Mark Webber is enthusiastic about the future of the band at Kearny High School. Mark informed me of an upcoming trip the band members will be going on at the end of April. The band will attend a workshop at Disneyland. “The kids deserve to participate in activities like this workshop and I hope to take them more places in the future,” said Mark.
Kearny Talent Show participants had fun performing for friends and family!
