SAC Hosts First Lip Sync/Poetry Slam

Lip-Sync-636x155Last Tuesday night, September 17, SAC held Reinhardt’s first Lip Sync Karaoke/Poetry Slam competition. The glasshouse was packed with lighthearted students and faculty wanting to have fun and dance. Complimentary snacks and drinks were provided, and the cool and comfy atmosphere was the perfect setup for the guest performer of the night.

 

Modern spoken word artist, Brandon Real T@lkWilliams, on twitter @REALTALKRAPS, performed several poems, which “connected” the student body. Students snapped along to his poetry – moving and hilarious works that speak to college students and teenagers alike.

 

“Redneck Woman” and Real T@lkin particular had the audience literally screaming “give me some more!”. This mantra was repeated before every new performer. Several bold students took the stage to lip sync and get their groove on to crowd-pleasing songs by beloved artists such as the Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys. The Wobble and the Cupid Shuffle brought half of the audience on stage to dance and have fun while Letia Wyatt and Shelby Noblitt ran the show. Alma Rangel, a member of SAC, was overjoyed at the success of the event, saying “Everyone did a good job, especially the performers. We had a great crowd and a lot of fun”. The energy from the crowd led performers to do some outstanding head-banging and students shouted out encouragement as they left their homework worries behind for a couple of hours.

 

While SAC does not have another Lip Sync night planned, they did announce their plan to play “The Conjuring” in October, along with several other fun events that students are invited to attend.

 

Students are encouraged to see any member of SAC to suggest ideas for events they would like to see at the school or to learn more about how they can get involved in events on campus. The RAINN Day: Take Back the Night Walk is the next event on SAC’s calendar. It is to be held on Thursday, September 26, from 7-9pm.
