Dennis Moore sings his solo "I Know You Will Bless Me" at the talent show. Moore, 19, whose stage name is “Sir Mo,” dedicated the song to his mother, who died in a car crash with his stepfather and older brother. Moore was the only survivor in the accident. He is producing an album and expects it to be out by May 25.

COLUMBIA — In honor of Black History Month, about 30 people gathered at Douglass High School Thursday to share a musical experience. “Without music and dancing, what would this world be like?” asked Tryee Byndom, coordinator of the “Second to None” hip hop talent show.

This was actually good news and I don't see any comments about the event. If 20 black people had gathered and a gun was fired, there would be dozens of comments. Instead 20 black people gathered, had fun, entertained, and broke no laws.... not one comment. I hope events like this happen more often, even if nobody else notices. For those who attended, keep supporting others to have a voice, work on your skills and promote the next event.
