2016 Pocono Great Talent Event Winner, Hailey LaBar had this to say about her PGTE win: ” I felt extremely shocked and happy when they said my name as the winner. I looked into the audience and saw all of my family and friends stand up and cheer with such happiness on their faces, it was the greatest feeling in the world. Words can’t even describe it. The acts that were chosen for top 25 were so incredibly talented. To be honest, I searched all the acts I could find on YouTube before the event, but seeing them perform live was even more amazing. Any one of them could have won. The room was filled with so much talent and such a wide range of age and style, I am so humbled to have won.” Hailey has since went on to do several radio appearances, and perform at Shawnee Riverfest VI.
