I remember my days as a youngling performing at talent shows and coffee houses. My friends and I were playing in rock bands together from the time we were about 13 years old. Unfortunately for us, we were pretty awful. I’m thankful that there aren’t any videos of us floating around online or else I don’t think I could live with myself.

That was before the age of YouTube and smart phones. I’m glad that I got that phase of my life out of the way before it leaked on the internet. However, there are some teenagers out there that are legitimately talented, and most talented kids in the St. Cloud area will all be performing at the most prestigious talent show I’ve ever seen next month at the Paramount Theatre.

I’m talking about the Night Of The Stars. I had the privilege of hosting last year’s show, and am honored to be doing it again this year. I wasn’t really sure what to expect last year, but I ended up being totally blown away.

Some of the students performing there are out of this world. If you’re interested in going you can get tickets for the event now by calling the Paramount Box Office or buy vouchers through the music programs at Tech and Apollo High Schools. The show takes place over the course of two evenings – February 22nd and 23rd.
