The Josiah Quincy School’s FIRE Quartet won the Boston Public Schools Got Talent Contest on June 15.

The four students used their musical talent to represent Josiah Quincy Elementary School with a video submission of Chinese song “Ba Luo Bo” or “yanking the turnip.” FIRE received the most votes to win the first-ever digital talent show.

“I like playing music for my friends and family, it’s fun and they get to vote for us. I love it,” said quartet member Mika Liu in a prepared statement.

The four BPS students are members of the Boston String Academy, a nonprofit organization that promotes engagement in music making by providing string instrument instruction to city youth. FIRE represents the Josiah Quincy School’s values: “Focus. Integrity. Respect. Empathy.”
