ROSE GOT TALENT
Now you see it Now you don't

His friends’ mouths drop open as senior Delton Moore bites off the top half of a quarter, and then with a swift huff of air changes it back to normal. Moore started practicing magic in middle school.
“I saw a TV show [called Mindfreak] about a magician Chris Angel,” Moore said.
Chris Angel was Moore’s favorite magician and the person who influenced him to start practicing magic. Moore performed magic using cards and by creating illusions.
“The biggest crowd I ever performed in front of was my family,” Moore said.
Although he was constantly performing for his friends and family, Moore had a goal to audition for “America’s Got Talent.” He did not reach that goal before he retired this talent, but he did audition for his middle school’s talent show. His friends supported Moore’s talent and wanted him to continue to pursue magic.
“My favorite trick he would do was the one where he had three balls in his hand,” senior Ronald Wilson said. “And he would move his hand around and open it with only two balls left.”
Wilson has known Moore since middle school and always wanted to see more of his tricks.
“I liked to see peoples expressions [when I performed magic],” Moore said.
After Moore saw the faces of the people whom he showed his first magic trick to, he could not get enough. Currently Moore does not practice magic, but the talent never left him. Moore can still perform magic and leave everyone in awe, even though it is not his top priority.
