FutureStars 2011 blew me away...seriously
I had the pleasure of attending Saturday's FutureStars 2011. I am not new to Ann Arbor but I had never heard of this event before. As someone who went to a variety of small high schools, I was involved in band and theater, so I appreciate live performances.
Students sang, danced, rapped and played instruments in performances that would make professionals jealous.
Case in point was this performance of an Alicia Keys song that I found so amazing, I've watched the video about 10 times:
Since this was only the preliminaries, there is still a chance to see these performances at the finale on Jan. 15 at 7:30 p.m. at Pioneer High School. I highly recommend it.
