Herschel Walker brings talent show to Toccoa

Former football star and now businessman Herschel Walker late one night googled talent videos, and it occurred to him that the performers receive no monetary support even though their submissions get plenty of hits on the computer. That gave Walker an idea to showcase talent from some of America’s smallest towns—such as Toccoa in his home state of Georgia. On Saturday, March 1 Walker will host “Herschel’s Raw Talent 2” at the Schaefer Center. Contestants will get three minutes to showcase their talent. Prizes await the top winners and 15 of the contestants will have the chance to make money, as long as Herschel’s Raw Talent 2 Toccoa, Georgia is online with ecommerce. Tickets to the event are $10 dollars and available at the door. Proceeds benefit the Currahee Arts Council. For more information, go to www.herschelsrawtalent.com.
