Yodeling To First Place In Senior Citizen Talent Show
The finale was well-attended by residents and friends and featured a short video highlighting the talents and performances of the finalists.
And it was time to crown the winner.
To everyone’s surprise and delight, Bootsie Kawa of Independence Village of Brighton Valley was announced as the champion of the Ageless Talent Show. All five participants brought immense talent to the stage. It was a close competition, but Bootsie’s yodeling and acapella version of “I Want to be a Cowboy Sweetheart” with her daughter, Linda, won over the hearts of the judges and audience.
Bootsie grew up with a love for music. As a child, she would hear her mother yodel around the house and, eventually, learned to yodel herself. Bootsie’s passion for music continued throughout her life. She joined a senior citizens center and took her talents on the road with their singing group, performing at various venues. She was married for 67 years and had three children. Now a resident of Independence Village, Bootsie was honored to bring her talents to the Ageless Talent Show.
Her victory is a testament to the fact that age is just a number, and anyone can pursue their passions and hobbies at any age. Her success has also brought joy and inspiration to other seniors living in StoryPoint Group communities.
