The Ohio Has Talent Competition is a state-wide event where individual and group acts from all over Ohio compete for the title of "Most Talented in the State."
In this week's Cool Schools, Hilary Zala takes us to Kettering Fairmont High School and tells us why the school and the Miami Valley has reason to brag this morning.
When Alex Wunder sings...he comes alive.
"I'm doing my own thing and living the song trying to be as passionate and as real as possible," Alex said.
And on February 9th, Ohioans took notice, "I was a little nervous," Alex says.
On stage at the 2013 Ohio Has Talent! competition in Van Wert, Alex sang and danced the 1975 hit song December 1963 by Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons.
Reenacting it for us today in the hallway of his high school, during the competition Alex says he sung from the heart and then anxiously waited for the results... "they called 3rd place, 2nd place and I was getting excited and didn't know what was going to happen"
Judged by people's choice and with just his mom and dad in the audience...Alex says what happened next was a complete shock!
"They called 1st and it was great!!
He won $500 and the respected title "Ohio Has Talent Champion!!"
"I like to make people, their facial expressions when they hear me and how i make people enjoy my music"
Alex is a member of men's chorus and an acappela group at Fairmont High School and he says he owes a lot of his success to his music teachers.
"definitely a big huge step when I wasnt here to when I was"
nats of singing
Alex Wunder...making Ohio and Fairmont High School very proud!
