Marshall University’s Housing and Residence Life staff hosted its third annual talent competition Monday.

Thunder on the Stage showcased a variety of musicians and performers.

For the second year in a row, Isaac “Shelem” Fadiga won first place at Thunder on the Stage for rapping and singing.

“I love performing and having a lifelong friend on stage with me made it even more enjoyable,” Fadiga said. “I’m glad we had the opportunity to showcase our talents.”

A local jazz band was awarded second place and country singer Joe Cline won third place at this year’s competition.   

Singers, dancers and a baton twirler all competed in the talent show. There were nine performers altogether.

Junior elementary education major Joe Cline sang two country songs. Cline said he was very eager to be a part of this year’s competition.

“I’ve wanted to do this for three years now,” Cline said. “I’m really excited and happy to be here.”

Housing and Residence director and chair of the Student Engagement Committee Jim Clagg said he was excited to be a part of Thunder on the Stage.

“I’m excited to have the opportunity to do this for the third year in a row and we’re glad to be part of a new campus tradition,” Clagg said.

The first, second and third place prizes were a $300, $200 and $100 shopping spree respectively.
