Different acts performed in front of five judges and a nearly packed Jones Auditorium audience, all with the single intention of winning the $300 first place prize for the Fall Talent Show made for an exciting college evening, Oct. 11.
The performances consisted of 10 different acts ranging from singing, dancing, juggling and stand-up comedy.
The event put together by Alpha Sigma Alpha started off by introducing the host of the night, famous stand-up comedian K-Von. Having appeared on NBC Last Comic Standing and MTV Disaster Date, comedian K-Von was introducing the talent while performing bits of comedy during act intermissions.
“Our host had a personality that really opened up the spirits of everyone in the audience,” Virginia Cervantes one of the main coordinators for the talent show from Alpha Sigma Alpha said about the host K-Von.
Talents from all sides of the spectrum were shown with experience of performers ranging between from a couple of years to those who were having their inaugural presentation of their talent being the night of the talent show. The crowd filling up more than half of Jones Auditorium was kept entertained through the entire show with raffles and bits of comedy from K-Von in-between acts.
A person who attended and won one of the raffle prizes was freshman Haleigh Saenz who said, “The show was cool, wish it had more bands playing. Seeing this inspired me to get up there next time and perform.”
To add incentive on top of performing in front of a well-sized crowd, the top three acts determined by judges were given cash prize money for competing. $100 to the third place act, $200 for second place and finally $300 was given to the winners of the show.
The three winners were all musical acts. Third place was Nisa Gonzalez, second place was Victoria Castro, and the winners of the Fall Talent Show went to the band called “Wings Over Society,” who performed an original song they had written and performed. The band formed by Jacob Mirabal, Ernest Garza, Joseph Misohal and Joseph Martinez.
Lead vocals Martinez said, “It feels great. It’s an honor, We usually perform in Corpus Christi, so to be able to perform in Kingsville in front of the crowd was really cool.”
