The Grace Baptist Church is the place to be for many local youths who come together to play ‘Trade Up’ or ‘Alien Tag’ each Friday night. The church welcomes all high school age youths to join in with their many events including last weekend’s Fourth Annual Hope Talent Show. Fifty kids attended the three-hour exploration into creativity, showcasing a video production, lip-syncing to the stars, and showcasing some serious talent. The evening kicked off with Madonna and Cindi Lauper taking to the stage, thanks to youth workers, Karyn Bonikowski and LaRee Russell. Once the crowd was warmed up the expressive youths took to the stage including, (pictured clockwise), Angelah, vocals/guitar; Dara, vocals; Alex on bass clarinet, and Corey on guitar and hamming it up for the crowd.

Even the talent show judges were also all smiles, with Cindi Lauper (aka LaRee), Haley Blum, and Amber and Dean Mercer volunteering to lend a hand with the event (pictured below l-r).
