Elkin Competes Tonight On ‘America’s Got Talent’

Staff Report

Cunot native Drake Elkin and his ‘All That!’ clogging friends who advanced last week to the semifinal round of the NBC television network’s “America’s Got Talent,’ will compete on the show live tonight, Tuesday.

“It’s pretty intense. I’ve grown up doing this and I always did the whole competition thing and always wanted to get out and do something a little bit more with it,” Elkin said prior to last week’s performance. “When you actually get to that point where you can show the world what you’ve accomplished and how far you’ve come, and to be on TV, it’s insane. We’ve been meeting all of the other acts as well and it’s been pretty cool.”

The son of Stephanie and Joseph Elkin of Cunot, 27-year-old Drake is married to wife, Nikkole, 28, the daughter of Daniel and Jennifer Morris of Clay City.

Watch Elkin and his clogging pals in the semi-final competition of “America’s Got Talent” on Tuesday, September 4. Results will be aired on Thursday, September 6.
