Best Buddies held their annual talent show May 8 in the WAUD auditorium in front of a crowd of around 50 people. For two hours, buddy families—made up of a student with an intellectual or developmental disability and one to four other students—sang songs, danced, drew portraits or did magic. Around thirty total students performed 20 different acts.

Club president Rachel Lerner has participated in talent show for four years and loved singing with her buddy, Lily.

“I love that everyone gets to have their own moment to shine,” Lerner said. “It’s great because some buddies love to have the spotlight on them, and this gives them the opportunity to be center stage and do their thing.”
