it’s not everyday that an international popstar appears at a local high school to perform a private concert. but that’s exactly what happened in lakewood, colorado today, when katy perry arrived (on her birthday) to reward the lakewood high school students for creating the winning gma music video for “roar” — her hit song from her incredible new album, prism.
the students of lakewood submitted their winning lip dub video, and got our attention by involving the entire school! we’re talking every club. every athletic team. the entire student body! the best part? they created all this awesomeness in just one take! we couldn’t believe it and neither could katy. she was so impressed, that she named the lakewood tigers “the school with the loudest roar” and ultimately, the champions.
as if we didn’t like these kids enough already, the tigers are using this opportunity to give back to their community by raising funds for colorado’s flood relief. and they are challenging every high school in america to do the same! talk about popstar status! to support this incredible cause, popchips donated 2,000 bags of katy’s kettle corn to lakewood high school.
