King Street Talent Extravaganza [SIV67] 

2/16/08: Magic, African drumming, a rock band led by a 9 year old and pies in the face.  No, it isn't Star Search, it's the 2nd Annual King Street Talent Extravaganza.

For decades the King Street Youth Center has served as a resource for children of all ages. 

Over the past 11 years Kevin Greenblott has been a mentor to Will Liberty, now aged 19, through the Buddy Program at KSYC.  Kevin and his family instigated the first KSYC talent show.

Mike Fife and his buddy Brandon McDonald have been hanging out for 1.5 years through KSYC. 

This year Brandon wrote a play called "The Pie" in which Mike gets, you guessed it, pied by his best pal.  Maybe it is better than last year when he was forced to wear a dress?

Other show highlights include Mashobane Moruthane and The Village Drumming, 9 year old Aiden Patterson Deutsch and his band Space Tiger, Edmunds Middle School Music Club led by Dan LeFrancois and Betsy Nolan and Edmunds MS Chorus also led by Betsy Nolan.

To quote Space Tiger, "Monkey, monkey, monkey, monkey, monkey, monkey, monkey, monkey, monkey, monkey, monkey, I'M TIRED OF YOU!" 

There are all sorts of things you can do to help out at King Street Youth Center, email Gabriel at gabe@kingstreetyouth.org to find out more.
