The Performance-based Standards (PbS) State/Agency Coordinators Training and Awards Ceremony in Boston, MA are only weeks away! Our participants are anxious to see the Kids Got Talent live performance.

This year PbS again challenged facilities to step outside of the box and participate in the PbS Kids Got Talent Contest. Youths in PbS facilities were invited to submit video or audio recordings of their talents for the second year in a row. With over 80 very entertaining performances, 15 finalists were chosen after careful consideration.

Our finalist from Tillamook Youth Correctional Facility in Tillamook, OR, Edward R., skillfully—and successfully–covered “Moving Mountains” by Usher. Edward’s distinctive vocal style and accomplished guitar playing complement each other perfectly and provide a fantastic listening experience. 

Thank you for sharing your talents, Edward, and congratulations on becoming a finalist this year! Make sure to keep checking back for more about the 2016 Kids Got Talent finalists.
