Pop Show ReviewWednesday, June 11, 2008 By Kristina Hobbs
Pop Show Review Crook County High School had their first Pop Show Tuesday June Third at 7 PM. It started out with JoBeth Hamon doing a solo of “Taylor the Latte Boy”. It was a humorous and yet miraculous performance. 2nd up was Michael Bates, Oliver Ellsworth, and Shaley Vaughn singing “Pray for Reign”. An outstanding performance with tremendous guitar sounds. Next came an excellent performance by Kyle Weaver and Alex Koutsopoulos singing About a girl. Then came the notably talented women’s choir. They sang “ Build me up Buttercup,” Lollypop” and “Annie’s Song”. Next up was Joanna Knower doing a solo of “Heaven.” She lit up the room, and swept the crowd away with this powerful performance from the heart. Hannah Deaton and Karlie Grasle did a stunning duo of “Carry On.” After that we had the exceedingly talented concert choir come together to sing “My Heart Will Go On”, “After The Gold Rush” and “Joy To The World”. An astonishing performance from Sarah Bergstrom touched hearts when she sang “Just a Little Girl” on the piano. Ms. Bergstrom had surprised her father in dedicating the song to him. What an emotional night that was for some, while others were stunned with excitement for the last half of the night. The night got even more interesting when Mariah Hakimian and Bob Steele got up and sang “New Again”. It was a unique performance with different but amazing lyrics. Mariah H. started out a little rough but ended with a provocative finale, leaving everyone stunned and wanting more. Up next were all the combined choirs singing “Let The Sun Shine In”, and during this outstanding performance everyone in the choir busted out into there hippy tie-dye shirts and surprised musical guest Marzell Sampson came out and joined in towards the middle and ended the song with an amazing vocal performance which left the crowd cheering with astonishment. 2nd to last the stage was swept away by the Sweeney Todd performance with all the choirs joined together. It was an eye-opening stunt, and everything from the black and red intensity of the lights, and the way the whole skit was so astonishingly similar to the real movie performance. Such a stunning, surprising performance was proof that there are a lot of talented young performers in this school. Last but not least the jazz choir rocked the house with Joanna Knower and Bambi Dunne performing amazing solos. All in all the night ended in an incredible slideshow. Over all, it was an unbelievable show. The crowd was in awe of the night and in hope for more shows like this in the future.
