Harlem’s famed Apollo Theater is becoming an extension of the Morristown music scene.
The Frelinghuysen Middle School student, a past finalist in Morristown’s Got Talent!, sang Clown by Emeli Sandé.
“I wasn’t nervous. I was happy with my performance,” Hanna said afterward. She competed against two other female singers and a male dancer from Paterson.
The crowd voted for a Japanese 14-year-old, who sang And I Am Telling You from Dreamgirls, to move forward in the $10,000 competition.
This actually was Hanna’s second appearance at the Apollo. She was called from the audience to sing a few lines last year, when Art of Play performed there.
In a nice gesture of support, members of Art of Play–we saw Domenico Randazzo, T.J. Coon and Ricky Webber–came to Wednesday’s show.
Hanna also got a good turnout from the Presbyterian Church in Morristown, including Pastor David Smazik, Associate Pastor Cindy Alloway and Music Director Matt Webb. Anne Dodd from Morris Arts cheered her on, too.
