Young @ Heart

If you haven't yet heard the story of this amazing choir, I think it's time you head
on over to the movie store, library, or your netflix queue to treat yourself to this
heartwarming flick that will leave you with newfound appreciation for life and music.
My dad recommended this documentary to me so I knew it would be good, but I was
still surprised by the power of the film. A truly unique message that resonates through
the lyrics and tunes of some of our favorite hit songs. It is great to have these "old" voices
on center stage where the young typically stand. No one said you could stay young forever,
but these guys prove you can definitely be forever young at heart.

Evan takes the stage

You may remember a certain Johnny Cash performance last year... Well this year at the Lakeville North Staff Variety Show, Evan -- err, Mr. Pierson -- stepped it up a notch, dancing as part of a "boy band", jumping around the stage as a cheerleader, singing backups to "Use Someboday", and leading "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" to a crowd full of enthusiastic students. Unfortunately I arrived just a little late to capture quite all that, but below you'll enjoy a couple snippets from the night.

Note: Evan is the second from the right at the beginning as they sit in the desks. He does a little jump rope warm up, and then throughout the dance he is primarily in the front on the audience's right. Enjoy!
