Last night at the Red Robinson Show Theatre in Coquitlam a panel of six celebrity and industry judges selected a 22-year-old Langley singer in a provincewide singing talent search. Shylo Sharity, one of eleven finalists picked from more than 400 entries, took the top honours after a sensational performance.
As winner of the Variety’s Got Talent contest, Shylo will appear on The Children’s Charity, Variety Telethon on Feb 12 and 13, 2011 and also have the opportunity to perform in one of the Great Canadian Casino theatres.
The panel of judges was comprised of Dal Richards, Vicki Gabereau, BJ Cook, Amy Foster, Mike Reno, and Squire Barnes.
Before and after performances by the contestants, Langley’s own singing sensation, 12-year-old, Cole Armour, entertained the audience accompanied by six dancers from the Source Dance Company. MC Howard Blank joked that it was a good thing that Cole was too young to enter Variety’s talent contest as the others would not have had a chance.
Congratulations, Shylo! We’ll be watching and listening!
