WRXT/Roanoke (Spirit FM) launched the first Virtual Talent Show at a time when the world is being forced to stay indoors. With life only happening behind the scenes now, a Virtual Talent Show created a way for families, friends, and coworkers to unleash their creativity. Entries ranged from singers and dancers, to trampoline routines. After two weeks of receiving entries, our team came to a conclusion at noon on Friday. Our winner, Hannah, is a college student who is passionate about using her talent for the Lord. Because she won the talent show, she will get the opportunity to record at a studio when times are safer. With Facebook and digital promotion, the Virtual Talent show was a success. The Spirit FM team is grateful to keep building relationships throughout the community even when it looks a little different. Check out the winner, runner ups, and honorary mentions HERE.
