On December 1st, young poets and musicians from Chippewa Valley High School put their talents on display at “Rock The Mic.”

“We bring over 150 high school kids into our cafeteria on a school night to read, sing, play music, rap, and tell jokes. It’s magic. It truly is amazing how diverse and talented the performers are,” Mr. Jeffire said in an interview with Poets And Writers.

The event, held in the cafeteria, began with a performance by Soul-Blues-R&B singer Laura Rain, who was invited to perform. After performing her hit songs “Sunset,” “Pay To Play,” and “Seasons,” the many student performers began.

The event included impressive performances from poets Reed Similar, Rebecca Kowal, Anna Hart, and many others whose names I could not catch. Christian Boni performed an excellent, comical song on the piano, and members of the choir performed two songs, one being recent hit “Hello” by Adele.

“We give a segment of our student population a chance to be heard and make an impact. This is their big moment and it’s celebrated. Even the kids who don’t perform benefit—they see poetry in a different light,” Jeffire added. “Attending just one event, they become turned on to literary art. Mission accomplished.”
