Support Sylva's Mountain Faith on "America's Got Talent"
We are so proud of Sylva's own bluegrass/gospel band Mountain Faith for advancing to the semifinals of NBC's "America's Got Talent." Please continue to support the band at 8 p.m., next Tuesday, Sept. 1 as they will be performing again live on national television at New York City's Radio City Music Hall.
Here is a link to their third round performance on Tuesday, Aug. 25. That particular day happened to be proclaimed "Mountain Faith Day," by the Town of Sylva, after a proclamation was made by Mayor Maurice Moody at the band's Concerts on the Creek performance in Sylva on Aug. 14. The concert was the largest-attended performance in the series' history.
For more information on how to vote, please watch the show which airs at 8 p.m., next Tuesday, Sept. 1 on NBC, visit the show's website at www.nbc.com/americas-got-talent, or visit our Facebook page where we'll be keeping fans posted with updates on how to vote.
Concerts on the Creek underway through Labor Day weekend
