At 8 a.m. this morning, Robert Roe will step into an audition unlike any he has experienced before.

Roe has performed in front of audiences as large as a school assembly of students or an auditorium filled for a Performing Arts Showcase to as small as a circle of friends at a local venue or alone at home for his high school sweetheart and wife of 42 years, Starr. His audiences have enjoyed learning, listening and relishing in his Native American-style flute concerts, during which he delivers original music on an array of handcrafted wood flutes he designed and made.

Roe hopes today’s stage will issue the same warm and inviting reception when he performs for producers and the likes of Sharon Osbourne, Howie Mandel and Piers Morgan during the first round of auditions for the seventh season of “America’s Got Talent.”
