Maine’s Got Talent Winner Announced | Events
Max Ater of Bath was declared the fourth winner of the Maine’s Got Talent competition, sponsored by the Miss Maine Scholarship Program, on Sunday, May 6, 2011 at the Morgan Hill Event Center in Hermon. Max captured a $500 cash prize and additional performance opportunities. He wowed the judges singing “Back to Romance,” an original song while accompanying himself on the keyboard.
Boomshop, a barbershop quartet from Jackson comprised of Merton Dana, Cay Outerbridge, Colby Hinson, and John Peotie, placed first runner-up. Singing “Natural Woman” and placing second runner-up was Ali Stauble of Portland.
The finalists, which included dancers, vocalists, instrumentalists, and a freestyle beat boxer of all ages and styles of music, were determined by DVD/VHS submissions. Upon his announcement, Max responded, “Being the winner of Maine's Got Talent is something I never saw coming! I was struck by the incredible kindness and fun-filled atmosphere the Miss Maine Scholarship Program had to offer. My dream is to become a full time musician, and I'm so pleased to have $500 to keep that dream going and be able to say I won such an amazing event. Congratulations to all of the other Maine's Got Talent finalists; everyone did an excellent job! Thanks to all involved in such a wonderful event and meaningful cause.”
