Morristown’s Got Talent! has named 16 finalists for its seventh annual contest. They were chosen from more than 70 acts who auditioned earlier this month for the chance to compete for a $1,000 top prize at the Mayo Performing Arts Center on Feb. 26, 2014.
Tara Bernie of NBC’s Access Hollywood will emcee.
The finalists are:
Band of Misfits
The Merritt Sisters
Moderately Bright Four
Morris Music Men
Nailah K. Taylor and Rexx Hill
Rudy, Jim and Steve of Tony’s Pizza
Gabrielle Visser Trumbell
Joe Van Loon and accompaniment
Tickets will go on sale in January. Morristown’s Got Talent! is organized by the Morris Educational Foundation. Last year’s show raised more than $50,000 for programs in the Morris School District.
The competition is open to anyone who lives, works or studies in Morristown, Morris Township or Morris Plains, and to alumni of Morristown High School.
