So much talent in one room. PG’s Got Talent show, conceived by one of Prince George’s most gifted performers singer, actor, dancer, musician Sufey Chen wowed the crowd Saturday with a wide variety of acts.
One of the evening’s highlights was a performance by Suspended Strings (Arielle Logan and Kirstin Patkowski), who thrilled the audience with energizing fiddle and guitar music. Together for three years, they are a duo to watch out for.
Young Cole Abou-Tibbett showed off some fantastic breakdancing moves that seemed to defy balance and gravity. Lost Cause 34 and This Place? rocked the house.
There was a beautiful piano performance by Austin Lu. As well, 16-year-old pianist Andrew Lo tickled the ivories in a more contemporary way. Shante Van Horlick, who released her first album Miracle at age 12 (she sings at Carnegie Hall in June), dazzled with two stellar solos.
Classically trained singer Rachel Morgan sang from the heart and soul. Comic Erik Leisinger and actor Gracey Syme made us laugh.
In all, two dozen performers took to the stage and showed that there is no doubt how big the talent is in Prince George and kudos to Chen for bringing new acts out of the woodwork.
