Bryant Igwe (12) shows off his dancing skills on the stage.

Singers, dancers, pianists, guitarists, and baton twirlers from Oakville High School, Oakville Middle School, and Bernard Middle School competed in the sixth annual Oakville’s Got Talent show on Friday, Jan. 18.

Bryant Igwe (12) won first place in the high school category, winning a $100 cash prize with his dance routine to “Don’t Let Me Down” by The Chainsmokers. His routine combined hip-hop with animation and robotic style elements.

“It was definitely one of the best moments of my life,” said Igwe. “It just didn’t seem real.”

The acapella group of Mady Baker (11), Christian Boll (12), Riley Hicks (12), Tori Jones (12), Trent Manning (12), and Eric Throm (12), titled “E,” won second place, and Mackenzie Deutchman won the People’s Choice Award, keeping the audience entertained with her upbeat tap routine.

For the middle school category, Sienna McGilvery, an eighth-grader from Bernard Middle School, won first place, and performed “Pathetique Sonata” on the piano. Ava Winchester performed her baton routine and won second place, and singer Katie Pritchett won the People’s Choice Award.

The money raised at the event goes towards the OHS Choir program, and was put on by Tri-M Honor Society students.
