Talent Show Auditions

City College’s third annual talent show, “City is Full of Talent”, is more than just a song and dance.

“You always get the singers, the dancers, the rappers,” Tudy, a student at City College, said. “I put something in their heart.”

Tudy auditioned for the talent show on Feb. 4. He plans to perform Indigenous dance and poetry.

“Most of it is through body language,” Tudy said. “It’s going to be powerful.

Another student, Mykah Johnson, is going the more traditional route and auditioned with the song “All We Know” by Paramore.

“Singing is all I do,” Johnson said. “I’ve been singing forever.”

Johnson, 19, was a singer in a rock band. She has also tried out for American Idol.
When asked how she would rate herself on a 10-point scale on the sign-up sheet, Johnson said, “I would give myself a 9 only because I’m nervous.” Tudy, on the other hand, said he’d give himself a 10. “I’m proud of what I do,” he said.

The talent show was set up in 2009 as a fundraiser for City College’s Scholarship Fund. Tandy Ward, ASG Student Affairs Coordinator and Counselor, has been organizing and conducting auditions.

“The first year was really successful,” Ward said.

In 2009 the talent show raised $1,700 and $1,100 in 2010. The talent show is planned to take place on Feb. 26 in the Saville Theatre at 7p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door.
