Wale Aliyu, front center, who won third place at the hip-hop talent competition, helps 4-year-old Sanaya Hazlette off the stage after twirling her. Sanaya had joined Aliyu, Frankie Humphrey, back center, and DeAngelo Harris, right, on stage during the free dance portion of the event that followed the rapping and spoken word performances. Aliyu performed “Weight of the World" as his rap. He uses rhymes and phrases to express his thoughts on faith, hope and love.
