It has become tradition that Universal Medicine celebrates the conclusion of each year with the ‘usual presentations’ followed by entertainment from the student body. Each year more talent comes forward to strut their stuff – in a very wholesome, entertaining and, this year, extremely funny way.
Juzzie has been entertaining families on the North Coast for years. You can see him at markets or busking on the streets. Now he has added juggling while he is performing on musical instruments. Part of the joy is seeing how much fun he is having.
Chris, leading any choir, is a delight to the ears and heart. This year his newly formed men’s group (Sounds Deep) was deeply astounding.
Victoria’s performance left a footprint of love, as did all the other performers on the day.
But I am going to give the award to Rebecca Baldwin and Sarah. They were remarkable in so many ways. Firstly, I didn’t know they could sing that well. Didn’t know they could write such funny but truthful lyrics. Didn’t know they could dance. Even more surprising, they can dance and sing at the same time and change styles of music without missing a beat. Even getting their aprons entangled in the microphone headsets felt like part of the entertainment.
I can assure you, there are no damsels in distress here.
In the next performance, Rebecca’s two male support dancers were a fun addition – but who could take their eyes off Rebecca? I’m not sure if it was the magnetic pull of the magenta dress or the open hearted smile that conveyed how much fun she was having. In either case, she stole the show.
