Meet the Tomatoes Got Talent Show Finalists 2016
Wow oh wow! What a talented group of tomatoes. The auditions were super competitive this year and we are so proud to announce our 2016 Tomatoes Got Talent finalists. By day they’re legal secretaries, artists, boutique owners, retired flight attendants, Wall Street money managers, computer geeks, and more. Our youngest finalists were born in the 1970s and our oldest finalist was born in 1925 (but we’re not saying who.) Join us on Sunday, March 13 at the Triad in NYC when they take the stage and turn into super stars.
Beth loves books and music. By day she is an executive for a large book publishing/marketing firm, but for fun and joy, she loves singing cabaret. She also likes the theater, traveling and her corgi.
Ellen loves color and music. As an abstract painter whose art you will find in galleries around town, she explores color. Her other love, music, she expresses through singing Cole Porter Songs.
Jane loves singing acting, but supports herself as personal assistant to a NYC philanthropist. She also expresses her creative side as artist who works in water colors and acrylics.
