Everyone knows that West Point is full of raw talent. Thanks to the Pilot Club, everyone who attended Legends; One Hit Wonders, Saturday night at the Community Counseling Services Gymnasium knows just how talented this town can be. From Scott Reed and Mia Vick doing a rendition of Michael Sambelloâ€™s â€śManiacâ€ť that no one will ever forget, to Jessi Flyntâ€™s version of Jeannie C. Rileyâ€™s â€śHarper Valley PTAâ€ť that shed a spotlight on the shenanigans of some of West Pointâ€™s most prominent citizens, to Monty Yates heartfelt â€śOne in a Million.â€ť A song made famous by Larry Graham. The crowd was rockinâ€™ and rollinâ€™ until the last verse of â€śIce, Ice Babyâ€ť happily not performed by Vanilla Ice but by Paul Bennett, Bruce Johnson, Larry Stone, Mack Vaughn and Matt Warren.
Legends is now a West Point tradition brought to life by the West Point Pilot Club. Every year the Pilots round up local singers, musicians, dancers and people who just love to perform.
â€śWe all have such a good time putting this together every year,â€ť said Pilot Club member Linda Taylor. â€śEveryone has fun. From the singers and dancers to the people backstage. Itâ€™s a lot of work, but its also our biggest fundraiser of the year to allow the Pilots to launch projects that help the community.â€ť
Twenty-two acts spanning from singers of love songs, pop songs, groups, dancers and people who had a lot of fun putting their own twist to novelty songs, every performer brought their very best to an appreciative audience. What will the Pilot Club do for Legends next year?
