May 31: Sweet Cherie at Johnson Middle School
Sweet Cherie did a go-go workshop with 6th-grade students at Johnson Middle School. The students entered the library excited to meet Sweet Cherie. Students were asked if they had been to a go-go before. One student shared how his older brother had taken him to a go-g0 and that he loved the experience. After describing her own history with go-go, Sweet Cherie asked the students to make some go-go beats on the tables.
Students kept the beat while Sweet Cherie played some popular songs on her keyboard. At one point, a student goes up and began to sing along to the surprise and delight of his classmates. Another student played a song on Sweet Cherie’s keyboard while she backed him up with a go-go beat. The visit was funded by Office of the Chief of Schools of DCPS.
