Greenville native takes his last bow on "America's Got Talent"

Posted: Updated:

The Valley has been well represented on "America's Got Talent" this season, but now the Valley's run has come to an end.

The Air Force Academy's a cappella group In The Stairwell did not make it past Wednesday night's cuts.

The group performed "Castle on the Hill" by Ed Sheeran live Tuesday evening.

Greenville native Mercer Martin is part of the group and said in a statement:

All I can say is thank you to everyone who sent their love, encouragement, and support our way! It's been a magnificent experience and I couldn't be more honored to represent Western, Pa.

Martin is a senior majoring in political science at the Air Force Academy. He was the captain for the past year.

In the Stairwell started in 2004 with a gathering of three to four freshmen in the stairwell. The stairwell is a place where they are allowed to sing amidst tight restrictions in other parts of the dorm. Just last year, the group became an official club.

While attending Greenville High School, Martin was the drum major in the marching band, an all state chorus and band member and an actor in musicals and plays. Martin is a 2014 graduate of the school.
