You may hear live music on your MARTA commute this month

A few months back, MARTA held a two-day talent show at the Five Points station. 

Officials saw acts including a hip-hop artist, a six-member a capella group and a one-person piano, voice and percussion performance.

From those 43 performers who auditioned, 20 acts were chosen. See the winners of the inaugural program — and when you can find them at one of eight train stations — below.
