The Performance-based Standards (PbS) State/Agency Coordinators Training and Awards Night in Chicago, Illinois is now only a few months away. Participants are waiting to see the results of PbS’ annual Kids Got Talent Contest. PbS challenges facilities and youths to share their talents with the country and invites the winner to come perform live at the Awards Night. We received over 80 great performance submissions, and after careful deliberation 14 finalists were chosen.

Xavier V. from Kearney Youth Rehabilitation and Treatment Center submitted an original poem. In a moving tribute for his grandmother, Xavier presents this rap backed by a simple and original beat, to showcase his words. He tells a touching story which both reflects on his past and looks toward his future. Our judges raved about Xavier’s talented delivery and the emotion he put behind his words. Make sure you continue to stay tuned in the coming weeks for more performances from our 2017 Kids Got Talent finalists.

Congratulations on becoming a finalist, Xavier, and thank you for sharing your talent!
