Locals to perform at DHS Factor

Some of Davis High’s most talented people will have the chance to present their skills to the community Thursday at the first annual DHS Factor talent show. Nine groups of performers will sing, dance, beatbox and play music for a prize.

The contest will take place at 7 p.m. in the Brunelle Performance Hall at DHS Campus. Tickets are $3 for DHS students with an ASB card, and $5 general admission.

The DHS Factor is a talent show styled after the popular TV show “The X Factor” but with one major change.

“We don’t have judges,” said DHS senior and head of DHS Factor committee Raquel Valdes. “The people will be able to vote (for the best act), and we will have a prize for the winner.”

The best act will receive a $50 gift card to any participating business in downtown Davis.

Students and staff from DHS are allowed to perform any act they please. Seniors Eddie Berlin and Jacob Muller will sing, and another group of students will beatbox. Gwyn Bruch, director of the drama department, will perform as well.

“There’s a lot of singing and dancing, but there’s a whole variety of acts,” Valdes said.

Senior Kevin Sorenson and junior Ben Crook will perform a song on their guitars, along with senior Monica LeFlore. The group came together because of their shared passion for music.

“Me and Ben, we’ve been playing guitar together for a few years, so we thought me might actually learn a song and play it,” Sorenson said.

Crook said: “We’re just really musical people, and we wanted to perform in front of people.”

The trio is keeping its song choice a secret but intends to win the competition.

“We’re going for the gold, baby,” Crook said.

Tickets are available at the DHS Finance Office at lunch through Thursday, at the Brunelle Performance Hall on the night of the event, and online at webstores.activenet.com/school-software/davis_high_school_on/
