Talent Show 2017

Hannah’s Musical Hope’s Second Annual Talent Show was amazing! All the talent was so good it was hard to hand out awards because we wanted everyone to be a winner. This year we tried audience voting which was lots of fun, although next year I think we’ll go back to having our wonderful live judges. This year we had 12 performers and featured last year’s winner Maggie Wilson on the Flute! We had magic, comedy, dancing, and singing! We even had performers come with their own original songs and skits! This year kids didn’t just come from West Branch Iowa, but from farther around such as Coralville and even Pella!

To left is pictured this year’s talented Emcee Wes Chaplin, who came all the way from Pella Iowa. In Pella Wes Chaplin is a lawyer but Emcees for Pella’s show choir competition; Dutch Masters, and his a huge supporter for the fine arts! Wes made this year’s show better than ever!

This Year the winner of the show was the dream team of Sam Sharp, Tate Petty, and Jarod Martons! Everyone else placed really close to each other! In the middle school group first place went to Summer Saylor, second place went to Olivia Baily, and third place to Jayden Franklin. In the high school group first place went to the dream team, second place to Tate Petty, and third place to Ben Colbert and Cassandra Scheer! It was a great show!


We want to put out a special thank you to West Branch High School for letting us use the auditorium, and North Dodge Hy-Vee for donating awesome cake for after the show! We also want to thank our other sponsors, University of Iowa Credit Union, Crystal Clear Water, Main Street Sweets, Prairie Lights Bookstore, Jimmy Jack’s Rib Shack, Brown’s Dealership, and Buffalo Wild Wings!
