5 singers to vie for top prize in teen talent show
Local fans of “American Idol” have the chance to be a part of a similar type show here in Mesa County.
Five teenagers from across the county were selected from a group of 30 talented teens to sing to win $1,000 cash at the Western Colorado Teens Got Talent show. The other four finishers also win cash prizes, albeit less than the $1,000 top prize.
The winner will be determined by audience vote, giving the talent show that “American Idol” flavor.
The show is being put on by the Grand Mesa Sweet Adelines Chorus. The Grand Mesa Chorus and three of its quartets will perform in addition to the five competing teens. Bounce, a Salt Lake City-quartet, is the guest performing group for the talent show.
The shows are at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 16, at Avalon Theatre, 645 Main St.
Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors, $10 for students ages 6–20 and children younger than 6 are free.
Tickets can be purchased at Trophy Case, City Market locations, Roper Music, Back Porch Music, Hart Music, from Grand Mesa Chorus members or the Avalon Theatre before the show.
