Winners Announced at "Taylorsville's Got Talent"

Saturday evening 15 Taylorsville residents and Taylorsville’s city council and mayor performed on stage at Taylorsville High School at the annual, “Taylorsville’s Got Talent” community talent show. Winners of each division were: Megan Frost and Kamerin Ekker - youth division, Tanner Gilgen - junior division, and Leah Jacobs and Chelsey Curruth - adult division. The winners won a cash prize and the opportunity to perform during Taylorsville Dayzz next summer.

Most of the performers sang, but one resident did a magic show and another did a comedy routine. The performers ranged in age from 12-69.

To kick off the evening, the five Taylorsville City Council members and Mayor Russ Wall performed a number together. The six elected officials wore white gloves and patriotic hats, and used chimes to play, “Yankee Doodle.”

Mayor Russ Wall and Councilmembers Jerry Rechtenbach, Dama Barbour, Ernest Burgess,
Larry Johnson, and Kristie Overson "tune" their chimes prior to performing.
“We’ve worked very hard on this performance and are excited to show our support for the Taylorville Arts Council,” said Wall. “Taylorsville residents are a very talented bunch... unfortunately they may find that their elected officials are not so musically inclined.”

“Taylorsville’s Got Talent” is an annual event sponsored by the Taylorsville Arts Council.
