Preview: NHS Talent Show

NHS has been gearing up to showcase the talent of many students at West with a Talent show. This show will benefit the KC Blind All-Stars, a foundation that demonstrates compassion and creates opportunities for children who are blind or visually impaired by administering a wide range of programs including arts, education, athletics, employment & entrepreneurial.

It took a lot of hard work and motivation to put something together that would essentially replace and even exceed the previous benefit Rock For Hope.

Rock for Hope wasn’t as successful as projected, which caused NHS to come up with a new way to raise money.

“Rock for Hope wasn’t bringing in as much money, so the society decided to switch the events,” Amy Blakemore, NHS Sponsor, said.

With the change in events the talent show will raise lots of money due to the very little amount of money needed get it started.

“We’ve paid a total of nine dollars so far in comparison to the large amount needed to hire bands for Rock for Hope,” Blakemore said.

With so many students not only attending, but also performing, it will be worth it.

“Everyone’s a little nervous when they create something, and want it to succeed,” Blakemore said.

The night will feature a large variety of acts and talents. This is a chance for students to showcase the many talents they possess.

There will be a cello performance, ballroom dancing, animal impression, poetry reading, singing, ballroom dancing, and a lot more!

Tickets can be purchased for $5 from any NHS member or in room 33 from Mrs. Hesseltine. They will also be available for purchase at the door for $7.

The NHS Talent Show will take place on May 3rd at 7pm.

There is no way you won’t enjoy this event so buy a ticket and support the KC Blind All-Stars.
