Ohio Has Talent

Johnson Siblings win Ohio Has Talent!

CHP's 11th annual Ohio Has Talent competition was held Feb. 24 at Niswonger Performing Arts Center in Van Wert. While there were 18 talented acts, only one could come out with first place. This year Dru and Michaella Johnson's rap duet landed them that title.

The siblings both attend Van Wert High School and have competed solo in Ohio Has Talent in year's past, but this was the first year they competed together, and the first year either of them placed first. "It was the power of two," said an excited Michaella after their Ohio Has Talent win. The pair performed “I’ll Find You” by Lecrae and Tori Kelly and won a trophy as well as $1,000.

Four other acts were honored at this year's Ohio Has Talent. Sixteen-year-old triplets Nora, Addy, and Marlee Vaughn placed second in the competition. The vocal trio from the Fort Recovery/ St. Henry area received a trophy and a $500 prize. Third place went to 13-year-old Reese Looser from Perrysburg. Looser performed Leonard Cohen's beloved song, "Hallelujah." Looser received a trophy and $250.

Two honorable mentions were also given to siblings Isaac and Joscie LeFevre from Fort Recovery, and Alexis Muhlenkamp from Coldwater. Other performers included The Glamour Girls, Lainie Jones, Tim Kindinger and Jody Wade, The Clogettes, Spencer Pauquette, Natalee Patrick, Yan and May Coppler, Lauren Schroeder, Evie Van Vorhis, Awakened Commotion, Bayley Tow, Dancers Elite, and Katelyn Hanes.

Ohio Has Talent winners are decided by an audience vote. Each audience member was allowed one vote and then votes were tallied while last year's winner Gabe Bailey performed.
