Our prodigal son, Miguel Dakota, from Monument, has once again made us all proud.
The 22-year singer and guitar player is making waves on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.” So many waves, in fact, that last night he made the semi-finals of the show, a definite coup.
He competed with 11 other acts Tuesday night, and his full-band rendition of The Beatles’ “Come Together” scored with viewers, who voted him into the top five.
He’ll eventually compete in the top 24, once all the acts have performed and the viewer votes are in, and then, hopefully, the top 12.

Dakota is flying back to Colorado for a Saturday night concert at the Tri-Lakes Center for the Arts. He’ll perform with his band Spiral Lion, and I heard from Michael Maddox, a board member of the center, that the show is sold out. Sorry, fans.
But guess who gets to go? I do, I do! I’ll take a listen and have a looksee at our latest celeb, and report back from the frontlines on just how much he rocked. It’s a tough job, but… you know the rest.
