Singing, playing piano, and rapping … Oh my! The sounds of DRA’s talented students filled the afternoon last Thursday at “DRA’s Got Talent”. There were seven finalists slotted to perform at the big show: Karina and Kennedy, AJ and Junior, Cameron, Corrina, Brenda, Nicole, and Janaye. The third place winner was Nicole who, accompanied on the piano by Corrina, sang “Goodbye my Almost Lover” by Fine Frenzy. Cameron took second with his performance of the theme song from “Titanic” on the piano. First place was a tie between AJ and Junior and Corrina. AJ and Junior composed an original rap, complete with drum beats and a piano solo by AJ. Corrina also performed an original piece called “Tell You”; she sang and played the piano. The winners were treated to an after-lunch benefit on Tuesday. There were also two ‘celebrity’ performances by the Lady ‘Back basketball team and also from
Ephraim Hanks, Clinical Director. The girls and their coaches performed the song “Lip Gloss” and later Ephraim sang and played the guitar. It was amazing experience for both performers and audience members!
