For Queens mothers and fathers who can sing, dance, make people laugh or have other talents, state Sen. James Sanders (D-South Ozone Park) is hosting a talent show in Jamaica next week that will provide them with a platform to show off their talents.

The show, which has been dubbed “Who’s Got Talent?,” will take place June 17 at Catherine and Count Basie Middle School 72 at 133-25 Guy R. Brewer Blvd. from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The event is being billed as a post-Mother’s Day, pre-Father’s Day extravaganza. Attendance is free, but participants must be a parent and be 21 years of age or older. To sign up for the talent show or to get tickets starting June 10, contact Sanders’ district office at (718) 523-3069 or (718) 327-7017.

Comedian Ray DeJon, host of the television shows “Video Music Box” and “Laffaholics Live,” will serve as the special guest emcee.

The winners will be selected by a panel of big name celebrity judges who are prominent figures in the entertainment industry. Details on the panel will be coming out soon.

Some of the prizes will include merchandise from designer Steve Madden and Bad Boy Entertainment. Light refreshments will be served.

Reach reporter Madina Toure by e-mail at or by phone at (718) 260–4566.
