HGT people's choice performance: Hills & Hollers
On January 3, 2014 Laura Ann Lilly, our YLSC team leader, coordinated the very first Hinton's Got Talent Show. There were 15 different musical acts from young people 8-20 years old from around the county. There was a whole heapin' helpin' of talent, it was a lot of fun, there were many smiling faces in the crowd and the funds raised go back to the YLSC youth program. We hope to make this an annual event.
The People's Choice Winners were Allen McGraw and Jacob Woodrum who performed "Hills and Hollers" written by Jacob. The 3rd place winner was Nick Bennett who performed a song he wrote entitled "Drop your Ammunition". Our 2nd place winner was Alix Crawford. She performed the song "Crazier". Our grand prize winners were Ciera, Dustin and Jacob Northern and their cousin Anthony Cales. They performed a bluegrass song entitled "Roll in in My Sweet Baby's Arms". Congratulations to everyone!
