Local man auditions for 'America's Got Talent'

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - "America's Got Talent" premieres Tuesday night, and a local man was among those who auditioned.

Mentalist Robert Channing of New Hartford auditioned in April for the show and performed for Howie Mandel, Mel B., Heidi Klum and Howard Stern.

And while Channing usually reads minds and makes predictions, he chose a different talent to showcase -- speed painting.

Among Channing's painting strategies is to paint with glue and glitter, so the image is not seen until glitter is thrown upon the canvas.
