OCEAN CITY — Singing, gymnastics and musical artistry on piano, guitar and aluminum foil flutes were on display Friday, Feb. 9 at the annual OC’s Got Talent show at Ocean City High School.
Organized and presented by the Key Club, the event packed the William and Nancy Hughes Performing Arts Center, raising money for scholarships and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The show ran about two hours with an intermission.
The presentations ranged from the heartfelt, like Sara Ruth’s rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream” from "Les Miserables," to the silly, as when the Tin Foil Flute Gang comprised of Harrison Hepding, Andrew Holloway and Adam King played a medley of popular songs on homemade flutes.
The presentation earned the trio the people’s choice award based on cellphone voting at the event.
The runner-up for the people's choice award was the OCHS Winter Guard, which presented a color guard flag routine that included gymnastics and a human pyramid.
Hannah Carr took first place, singing “Break Free” by Ariana Grande. The runner-up was Ruth, who won the event last year.
Steven Meyers, Mike Dickinson and Gavin Bower were undoubtedly the loudest, performing the Led Zeppelin song “Moby Dick.”
The judges were Tim Cox of the history department, Michele Dill of the mathematics department, Kara Uhrich of the world language department and Dan Weaver of the science department.
