— It was the first of three fi­nal per­for­mances for Car­bon­ear Col­le­giate’s school choir at the Car­bon­ear Col­le­giate prom. The op­por­tu­nity to let loose and give the per­for­mance of a life­time was here, and grad­u­ate Mike White of Vic­to­ria took full ad­van­tage of it. The soloist be­came a hit with the au­di­ence of stu­dents, teach­ers and fam­ily mem­bers when he showed his boss side dur­ing the Bruce Spring­steen song “No Sur­ren­der.” Hoots and hollers could be heard through­out the gym­na­sium as Mike rocked out to the 30-year-old hit song. The rest of the choir, in­clud­ing fel­low soloists Cody Hibbs and Adam Slade, joined in to a mem­o­rable con­clu­sion to a fit­ting mu­si­cal per­for­mance for a grad­u­a­tion. Other per­for­mances in­cluded “Happy” by Phar­rell Wil­liams, with soloist Alyssa Broom­field, ac­com­pa­nied by mu­si­cians Gre­gory Butt, Devin Neil and Lukas Kel­loway, and “You’ve Got A Friend” by Ca­role King, with soloist Erin Jones.
