Students display talents at Flare 2016

On April 7 the Norwell District Secondary School student council hosted Flare 2016.  

The event was a showcase of talent from the school. Twelve performers showed off their skills to a full house of parents, students and teachers.

It was a great night filled with memories for all of the  participants, officials say.

Judges for the evening were Lucas Rogerson, a professional singer and songwriter; Sharron Hardie, head coach of the Palmerston gymnastics club; and Luke Main, former Norwell graduate and winner of Cut the Mic.

The overall winner of the evening was Drew Moore, who won the crowd over with his versions of Let’s Get It On and New York State of Mind.

Second place went to Nicole DeBoer for her guitar and piano playing, coupled with vocals as she sang T-shirt by Birdy and State of Grace by Taylor Swift.

The third place finalist was Mackenzie Head who stunned the crowd with her versions of Adele’s When We Were Young and Demi Lovato’s For the Love of Your Daughter.

Organizers thanked Family Time Pizza, Norsco Sports and the Norgan Theatre for sponsoring the event.
