BWW Blog: Anastasia Sims-Chin - The Rainbow Connection 
by Guest Blogger: Anastasia Sims-Chin - Jul 6, 2016

Everyone has heard about it, all around the world. The deadliest shooting in US history happened right here, in Orlando.

The only good that could come out of a tragedy like this is the need for the community to come together and make a statement for the LGBTQ community. As an OCPS and Winter Park High School student I got the amazing experience of singing with 400 other students and teachers the song 'Beautiful City' from Godspell. This song represented how we can come together and make Orlando beautiful again. (more...)
