Blue Angel stuns once again

The Brothers of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Eta Nu Chapter hosted the annual musical variety show Blue Angel and once again it left the crowd stunned and awed by the talents this year.

The show was held in the cafeteria of the Toner Student Center on Nov. 2 and 3. Students performed the live musical acts from a wide variety of genres, from Taylor Swift’s newest hit single to one of Aretha Franklin’s old time classics.

There were three shows on Friday and two on Saturday. The late Saturday show was standing room only. Half of the proceeds from the show were donated to charities aimed at fighting men’s cancers. 

Juniors Rebecca Krueger and Eli Arnold had the honors of being the mistresses or hosts of ceremony. They kept the crowd laughing in all three shows. The two even performed an act of their own singing Starland Vocal Band’s hit single “Afternoon Delight.”

Although every performance was special there were some standouts.

The Trio of Shelby Clarke, Colleen Morgan and Jessica Drake performed a crowd-silencing rendition of Kelly Clarkson’s hit song “Dark Side,” garnering a standing ovation.

Bill Van Wagner brought the crowd to their feet with a mash up of Beyoncé’s hit song “Halo” and The Notorious B.I.G.’s classic “Juicy.”

Jessica Ingvalson got the crowd singing with her rendition of Taylor Swift’s hit “Never Ever Getting Back Together.”

Charlie and the Keys wowed the audience with their rendition of Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing.”

The Oldie Moldie All-Stars wrapped up the exciting show with their performance and nearly had the whole cafeteria out of their seats.
