Student Council’s Open Mic Night gives students the opportunity to show off talents

Students were able to put on a wide variety of performances at Ten & Two Coffee Tuesday, Feb. 27

Student Council hosted their Open Mic Night at Ten and Two Coffee Tuesday, Feb 27. The event allows students to show off their skills at the microphone.

Senior McKinley Graves sang at the Open Mic Night and enjoyed being able to share her talent with everyone there. Graves explains the unique atmosphere of the event and the variety of performances students could do.

“When I was up there playing I just was so gone from reality that some of the nervousness would go away.”

“It’s a bunch of people just singing for fun,” Graves said. “You can do whatever you want – karaoke, dance or stand-up comedy – whatever you want to show off.”

Adding on to Graves’ comment, StuCo adviser Faith Bilyeu enjoys that the event can appeal to so many different students.

“What I love about [Open Mic Night] is that it brings different students than you see at other events,” Bilyeu said. “This is something that appeals to a completely different student and anyone can be a part of it. What I really love is the incredible talent that we have and it doesn’t take a lot of money to host.”

After performing his rendition of “Earth and Moon” by Hospital Bracelet, senior Micah Boatwright shared what he felt while he was at the microphone.

“When I was up there playing I just was so gone from reality that some of the nervousness would go away,” Boatwright said.

Despite singing at the event, Graves favorite part of the night was getting to see her classmates’ performances.

“[I most enjoyed] watching everyone else,” Graves said. “There’s people you don’t expect to have certain talents and they really surprise you.”
