Marcellus students compete in Spanish lip-sync battle
April 2, 2018 -- More than 30 Spanish students at Marcellus competed March 16 in the school’s third annual Spanish lip-sync battle, which was organized by the Spanish National Honor Society. During the event, which was open to all Marcellus High School students enrolled in Spanish classes, the honor society accepted donations to help a Hispanic woman in need.
The students chose a song to interpret and created their own group name. The groups competing were: Las Reinas, Las Locas, Los Sacerdotes, Los Gringos and Sueño Equipo. The groups spent time choreographing and perfecting their performances and introductions – which paid off during the competition, Spanish teacher Shelly Marsh said.
First place went to Los Sacerdotes with their rendition of Don Omar’s “Danza Kuduro.” They received a cash prize of $100, which they chose to donate to the event’s worthy cause. Sueño Equipo, lip-syncing to Enrique Iglesias’ “Duele El Corazón,” earned $75 for second place.
Students and teachers alike are hoping that this will grow into an annual event and the whole community will become involved.
