I am planning on coming back next year! I have learned so much from this experience and will continue to grow as a singer and performer”!

Paul Tex Fillion – “To be able to sing next to the best was an honor, there were no losers , the angels of heaven would love to have any of the singers in their choir”.

Selah Mildred Mecham-Reed - "This was my first year at Talent Quest and the level of kindness is unlike any other. I heard so many people over the course of my week, in Laughlin, refer to everyone as their 'Talent Quest Family' and now I truly understand why. I've made so many new friends and have been blown away by the absolutely amazing talent I am so humbled to have been a part of it this year"!

Jessie Taylor - “Talent quest is the most wonderful competition around! It's a family. The talent is extraordinary and fully supportive of each other. It's not only an opportunity to win prizes its also a chance to learn from other contestants and make lifelong friendships”.

Angel Johnson Lees - “Thanks to this competition, I have become a better vocalist, a better performer and have made some of the best and most talented friends I have ever had. Plus it gives me a great reason to play dress up and bling it up.”

Randall Gary - "I'm a 2 time veteran to the competition. Made top 5 in my first year and my second year I made top 20. You have to be very careful when competing because it's like the special Olympics of singing and any wrong move or note could send you home early. I'm already training for 2016."
