    While you had been acclimating into the new school year, Chloe Lemunyan and Melanie Davis had been busy creating a music video that would feature the new hit single “Roar” to be entered in a GMA contest to win an in-school concert with the artist Katy Perry. Chloe and Melanie were working on the two minute video in and out of school that would promote anti-bullying.
    The music video showcased Melanie traveling throughout the school with makeup that resembles a tiger. She eventually ends up standing up to her bullies. Others who worked on the music video were members of Mask and Zany, Student Government, and Journalism classes, with makeup done by Erin Male and video equipment provided by Heather Borochaner. She hopes it will reflect self empowerment and motivate people to stand up for themselves.
“It’s a video about finding your voice and not letting bullies stand in your way. I really want people to identify with the video. The song is very strong and powerful, and I want the video to be like that too,” Chloe said. The best school’s video will win an in-school concert with Katy Perry that will be filmed live by Good Morning America. The deadline for video entries was October 1.
    The concert would take place on October 25, which also happens to be Katy Perry’s birthday. To watch other school’s videos or check the results, visit Stay tuned to watch the final cut of the video and find out the winning school. Go New Hope!
