On Sunday, February 24, talented Hampton resident Erin Warner was named a semi-finalist in the Kean Quest Talent Search. Erin, the daughter of Anthony and Kelli Warner, wowed the judges and the audience with her rendition of Sutton Foster’s “Gimme, Gimme” from the musical “Thoroughly Modern Millie.” Warner has always enjoyed singing, and began taking voice lessons at Musik Innovations in Wexford four years ago. She is no stranger to performing onstage, having appeared in Hampton Middle School’s production of “Beauty and the Beast” in 2011 and in three of the middle school’s annual talent shows.
Erin currently attends the Pennsylvania Leadership Charter School, where she is a ninth grader. When she isn’t singing or doing homework, Erin enjoys working with her looping station (a singing and recording device that harmonizes voices) and cosmetology. She also makes time for keeping herself healthy through running and practicing yoga. Right now, though, rehearsing her number for the Kean Quest Semi-Finals-Donna Summer’s “Last Dance”- and preparing an audition for the Lincoln Park School of Performing Arts in Midland, PA takes up much of her free time. Erin’s Kean Quest performance, along with those of the 14 other semi-finalists in the youth category, can be seen on Sunday, March 17th at the Kean Theater in Gibsonia. Tickets are $10, available at the door, and proceeds benefit the St. Barnabas Free Care Fund.
Congratulations, Erin, on advancing to the semi-finals!
