And the Winner is? Mark Bates

HUNTINGTON, WV (HNN) – Mark Bates has won the Tri State’s Got Talent competition sponsored by the Huntington Symphony Orchestra. The businessman and chairman of Huntington City Council finished first in an on line talent voting contest that had over 125,000 votes cast.

Bates will sing with the symphony at both of its Saturday, Dec. 17 shows. The evening event is called a “Christmas” concert and social event of the season. The afternoon performance is geared for children. Both shows are at Huntington City Hall auditorium.

Following the win, which has come as Marshall University’s basketball and football teams added wins, prompted Bates to post, “Go Herd and Go Huntington Symphony” on Facebook.

"I want to thank each of you who voted for me in the Tri-State's Got Talent contest. It would be great to see as many of you at the concert December 17th."
