Performance Friday: Zoe Mevorah

Each week, the LHS chorus classes allow students to showcase their talent. Multiple students perform each week for the highly anticipated “Performance Friday.” This section will display each performance and include interviews from the very talented performers. Here is one of last week’s performances:

Zoe Mevorah, Grade 12:

I sang “Legally Blonde,” and the song is about wanting to be accepted for you and not for how you look.

Q: How did you get started in music? Who are your greatest musical influences?

A: I got started in music because I was so intrigued by musicals. I have always looked up to Ariana Grande, not only because of her vocal abilities, but for her kind personality.

Q: Do you aspire to do anything with music in your future?

A: I’ve honestly struggled with this concept a lot. I’m afraid to turn something I love into a job and have it be tiring.

Q: What is your favorite part about Performance Friday and/or performing in general?

A: I’ve always loved being able to sing for an audience, and it’s so nice to hear feedback and to be able to improve each time and better myself.

Q: Do you get nervous to perform in front of people, specifically your peers? How do you quell your nerves?

A: I honestly do not really get nervous. I have definitely struggled with this in the past, but it’s not so much of a huge thing for me anymore. I try to look for the positive things in it and distract myself if I get nervous.

Q: What do you love most about music? Has music helped you in any way through the pandemic?

A: I love how special music can be. Everyone is different and struggles with different problems in life, and music is the one thing we can all share. It makes us the same in our own ways. I listened to music throughout the entire quarantine time to distract myself.
