"America's Got Talent" finalist to perform in Johnson City

Posted: Updated:
JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) -

 

A finalist from the TV talent show "America's Got Talent" will perform at Grace Fellowship Church in Johnson City.

Joe Castillo recently won over the judges and the nationwide TV audience with his "sand story art."

He'll perform Sunday, August 18th, at 4 p.m. and at 6:30 p.m. at Grace Fellowship Church.

Castillo once lived in Johnson City and attended the church.  He still has family members and many friends who live in the city.

"Joe Castillo has been performing for sold-out crowds around the world, and Grace Fellowship Church is delighted to have him return to share his talents with our community," said GFC Congregational Life Pastor Lawton Jones. 

What is sand story art?

Castillo draws in sand on a light table before a live audience.   An overhead camera projected the video of his creation onto a screen.

He came short of winning the grand prize on the TV show, but his friends say Castillo hopes to use his talent for a higher purpose.

"We know that Joe is not only an international crowd please but that as both a trained Christian minister and artist, he can share amazing stories of God's word through his sand art," said Jones.   "We encourage families to join us."

According to a news release, tickets are $10 per person.
