Ethan B., a 19-year-old who recently paroled from Rogue Valley Youth Correctional Facility, recently won first place in a national talent competition for youth in custody.
Ethan, backed by several members of the facility’s ukulele group, performed a cover of “Photograph” by Ed Sheeran. What made his performance extra meaningful, in addition to his vocal talents, was the video’s focus on his relationship with his own child.
The annual annual PbS Kids Got Talent contact invites all youth in PbS facilities and programs across the country to submit their talents for a chance to show off their skills.
