This year’s Hoboken Catholic Academy (HCA) talent show delivered, with gold-standard, world-class talent.
Joining the stellar student performers on stage last month for HCA’s Got Talent was the band Council, whose smash hit “Rust to Gold” has propelled them to stardom—having been featured in American Idol, the Winter Olympics and the 2018 FIFA World Cup Finals.
“The children participating truly are supportive of one another. There are performers at the first day of rehearsal that are overwhelmed on stage,” said says HCA mom and Talent Show Co-Chair Rosalyn Musker. “Three years ago I approached [HCA Principal] Matt McGrath asking for plays, drama club or a Talent Show, and he gave me the challenge. Along with mom, Kristi Alves, and assistance of the Student Council, the first Talent Show 2018 was a major hit! It is so rewarding to give back to the students and allow them this opportunity to showcase their talent.”
