Good Morning America recently held a Katy Perry music contest for high-school students. All they had to do was submit a video set to the singer’s “Roar” featuring fellow students, up to 2 minutes long. This week, one done by teens at Verrado High School in Buckeye, Arizona became one of five finalists. The winning school (to be announced on October 18) gets a Katy Perry concert, which will be broadcast live on GMA.
Cool, right? But the coolest part of all is that the video’s star, senior Megan Squire. She’s been on the cheerleading squad for four years and is now on the varsity squad, per AZ Central. And she happens to have Down syndrome. The video reenacts her tryouts for the team.
Roar, Megan, roar! A whole lot of us are cheering you on.
