Outstanding talent at “Be the Change” Talent Show September 23rd – Placer County youth (13 to 25)

AADC and Placer County Democratic Party hosted the first annual “Be the Change” Youth Talent Show at the General Gomez Arts & Events Center on Saturday, September 23rd to a standing room only crowd.  Master of Ceremonies J Ross Parrelli did a fabulous job of engaging the audience and performing.  Talent from all over the area (ages 13 to 25) amazed the audience with their performances around the theme “Be the Change” – from the Ghandi quote “Be the change you want to see in the world”.  

AADC is now planning a 2018 “Be the Change” Youth Talent Show.  Date to be announced.

    Hello. My name is James Nakata and my son (Serjeoh) performed in this talent show. He was the 2nd to last performer (dancer). Was wondering if there are any photos of him or an article in regards to the talent show? If so, would the article be published in the Auburn Journal? My co-worker lives in Auburn and I was going to ask him if he still had any past newspapers. Great show by the way.

    Thank You,

    1. Hi James. We took videos of all the performers and are making this into an event video, as well as individual video clips of each performer. In fact, I am getting the list of performers e-mail addresses since I need to get each performer’s release for us to use their images in the event video. Once I get releases from all or most performers we’ll be making the video available to everyone. Each performer will get one video free, and we’ll probably just charge our duplication cost for extra DVDs (approx. $5). I’ll keep you posted on our progress. We are so happy that our talented performers had a great audience and we want to extend the positive feelings of this event through the video. Best Regards, Jan Bell, AADC President
