SCO Takes The Great Stage!
April 12, 2019 / SCO News
The Garden of Dreams Talent Show is an annual show where children from various partner organizations get to perform at Radio City Music Hall. This year, SCO was represented by three talented acts; Westbrook Warrior Select Choir, T.J., and Cadet.
The hall was packed with SCO supporters with 100 staff, students, parents, and extended family members in attendance.
Westbrook Preparatory School’s choir, the “Westbrook Warrior Select Choir” performed Journey to the Past by Anastasia. The choir chose this song because it reflects on the importance of acknowledging their past and its role in creating a bridge to their future. For the Westbrook Warriors, music helps them during the challenging times in their lives.
T.J., short for Tyeneea and Jamarr, performed Bodak Yellow by Cardi B. They have been best friends since the 6th grade. Always encouraging one another, the duo turns to dance to help them overcome any challenges they face. Tyeneea is an aspiring professional dancer and Jamarr hopes to be an NFL player.
Cadet performed Feeling Good by Michael Buble’. She loves to sing and utilize singing as her own form of therapy. Recently auditioning for a televised singing competition, Cadet hopes to try out again and “make it big” on another great stage. In the future, she would also like to be a music therapist to help children with autism.
The evening was a source of pride and accomplishment for the entire SCO family and a living testament to the incredible power of community.
