Beatboxing, Yo-Yo tricks, singing, dancing, magic and more -- Mentor kids can do everything
More than two dozen kids showed just how much talent the city has during the Mentor's Got Talent show Tuesday morning at Civic Center Park. The show (now on its fourth year) had its share of singers and dancers, but it also featured its first ever rappers, Yo-Yo tricksters, beatboxers and street performers. While several of the performers were fantastic, 13-year-old Lauren Hodkey won by singing Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe." This year, the talent show was sponsored and judged by employees from the Walmart in Mentor. I saw a lot of your parents out there with cameras. Feel free to add your photos and videos to our slideshow.
