Even Simon Cowell will get a kick out of these performances

NORFOLK, Va. – (March 3, 2004) - Tidewater Community College hosts its 1st Annual Campus Star Talent Show on April 6 at 7 p.m. at the TCC Jeanne and George Roper Performing Arts Center in Norfolk. Admission is $2, and the general public is invited to attend.

The talent line up includes rappers, singers, dancers, steppers and poets. More than 80 contestants will compete in preliminary auditions for 20 places in the April 6 show. A 15-member student panel will make the final cuts on March 22 and 23. The TCC panel will present a $100 award to the winner the evening of the show.

In addition to the student acts, organizers have invited a few special guests including “Ringo,” an ever-popular barber from Granby Street and a fixture on the Norfolk campus. He will share his rapping repertoire with the audience. Also on stage, and a frequent guest on the Norfolk campus, will be ventriloquist Salaam and his dummy, Wilson.

The 1st Annual Campus Star Talent Show is sponsored by the TCC Agape Club. “We wanted to provide a forum for students to display talent and school spirit,” says Elizabeth Hines, Agape president. “We hope this show will be the first of a college-wide tradition.”
