Roar

I don’t much like modern pop music. I’d never actually heard a Katy Perry song until today when I watched a video that Walt Whitman High School students put together (that’s the school my two kids attended). The video is for a contest through Good Morning America who teamed with Ms Perry and asked high schools to put together a video to her song “Roar”. The school not only put the video together in 7 days, it featured most, if not all, of the student body and many faculty members. In addition to the song, the school featured last year’s campaign in which they raised $91,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. In the video several students and faculty members hold signs that read, “I beat cancer”. I love the whole video, but of course my favorite bit is the small wrestling segment featuring Harriet, a former teammate of my son. (:36 – :39 or so in the video — also to the right of the viking in the cover shot)

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did. Even if they don’t win the contest (and of course I think they should) they should be very proud of themselves.
