Tillsonburg and area kids recently competed in the first Tillsonburg Kids Got Talent Show at Sammy Krenshaw’s.
Nine acts performed, ages 13-and-under, from Tillsonburg and area, starting with St. Thomas sisters Danyka Satterly, singing Shallow by Lady Gaga & and Bradley Cooper, then Cici Satterly singing Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys.
Tillsonburg’s Carly Kennedy followed with her cover of My Church by Maren Morris.
Logan Staley rocked out Neil Young’s Rockin’ in the Free World, singing and playing electric guitar.
Judy Janzen, 14, accompanied her younger sister Elizabeth Janzen singing Riptide by Vance Joy.
“A few years back their grandparents lost their barn to a big fire,” said Keith Beres of Sammy Krenshaw’s, MC for the first Tillsonburg Kids Got Talent show, “and these girls took up singing to raise money to help the family. So that’s where they got started, and three years later they’re here on our stage.”
