TCHS Talent Show Winners
From left to right: Dylan Lightsey, Tavontae King, Raven Clawson, and Claire Davidson.

Out of twelve acts, Dylan Lightsey is the winner of the Tattnall on Top Talent Show held on the evening of Thursday, February 24, 2022, by Tattnall County High School (TCHS) Drama. 

Lightsey played a four-minute composition, which he wrote himself, called “Memories.” He has also composed a string quartet and a symphony, although he is unsure what the symphony sounds like since he does not have a full orchestra at his disposal.

Lightsey was taught piano by the late Connie Bowen at their church, Calvary Baptist in Glennville. After a few years of learning from her, Lightsey began teaching himself.

Upon high school graduation, he plans to attend Berry College to pursue a degree in history with a minor in music. He did mention, however, that his dream is to attend The Juilliard School in New York. 

Lightsey is 16 years old and a junior at TCHS. He is the grandson of Lambert and Debra Lightsey of Glennville.

Tavontae King of Glennville is the second place winner. King sang “Better Together” by Luke Combs at the talent show, showcasing his deep and smooth voice. 

King is 17 years old and is a junior at TCHS. He is the son of Robert and Carol King of Glennville.

Raven Clawson, 17, is the third place winner. The senior sang "Never Enough" from The Greatest Showman. She is the daughter of Lisa Riggs. 

The People's Choice vote went to Claire Davidson, 17, who sang Roberta Flack's, "Killing Me Softly," and Haley Wilds, 16, who sang Kelly Clarkson's, "Piece by Piece." Davidson is the daughter of Stacy Davidson, and Wilds is the granddaughter of Billy and Elizabeth Smith.
