Brevard's Got Talent
A Night of Great Entertainment

Selina Hoxit delighted the crowd with her unique voice and origial song

The snow could not stop this show! We were treated to some really impressive entertainers at SAFE's first annual Brevard's Got Talent show.

The judges Blake Ellege, Bart Gilleland and Mary Lynn Russo certainly had their work cut out for them. There was even a tie in the adult category. But after deliberating, they awarded the best in show trophies to:

  • Best Youth: Kate Gafnea for her performance of the original song "Altitude Adjustment"
  • Best Teen: Selina Hoxit (shown in photo) for her performance of her original song, "Right Love, Wrong Time"
  • Best Adult: Andy Thompson for his performance of "This Nearly Was Mine"

After he was finished with his duties as a judge, tenor Blake Ellege gave a stunning performance which brought the crowd to its feet! We are grateful to Blake for his support, and were proud to partner with The Blake Ellege Endowed Vocal Scholarship. You may buy his music online at www.etsy.com/shop/BlakeEllegeMusic .

We would like to thank everyone who contributed to this great night. SAFE board member Sharon Gurtler put together a terrific show, and we cannot thank her enough! We are also grateful to the many performers, volunteers and friends who gave their all and came out in support of both this event and SAFE's mission to end domestic and sexual violence in our community. Thank you all!
