Local Events – Week of Feb. 13

Western’s Got Talent:
Can you sing, dance, act or play an instrument? Do you enjoy entertaining people in some unique way? Then the first annual “Western’s Got Talent” competition may be for you! Blessings from Broncos is sponsoring an all-inclusive talent competition for all WMU students. Similar to “American Idol” and “America’s Got Talent,” “Western’s Got Talent” participants will be competing for a cash prize. Auditions are open Feb. 25 between 2 and 6 p.m. in room 209 of the Bernhard Center. A panel of WMU faculty judges will listen and watch you perform and select finalists to perform in the competition. There is a $1 auditioning fee and proceeds go to the Blessings in a Backpack Foundation to help feed underprivileged children in the Kalamazoo area.

Just show up and be prepared! Vocalists will sing a cappella, and all props or instruments must be provided by the performer. A variety of talents are welcomed and encouraged.

The competition is March 18 at 8 p.m. in room 209 of the Bernhard Center. Admission is $1 for WMU students with valid Bronco Cards and $2 for the general public. Again, all proceeds will be donated to the Blessings in a Backpack Foundation.

To register, please contact Matt Wrightman at matthew.l.wrightman@wmich.edu.
