Movie Review: Sing
by Shawn McCraith '18
The comedy is perfectly timed and can be understood by the audience. The length of the film is not too terribly long and may be just the right amount to anyone who would want to watch a movie about singing. The music and song choices that were selected will make you want to sing along because of the character’s voices. There are many well-known actors in the film with Matthew McConaughey being the main character along with Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Seth MacFarlane, and Taron Egerton as supporting characters. Sing is a wondrous sensation of sadness and buzzing joy that can be felt by anyone who watches, which makes this movie a must-see. A moderate pace with downright hilarious scenes throughout the movie and scenes that make you soggy-eyed from the actions of other characters makes the film seem like it is more than just singing animals.

Movie Review: Coleman Richard Hell
by Meche' Williams '19
When I hear “2 Heads” come on I feel energetic, my mood completely changes and sky rockets to wanting to get up and start dancing and sing along with Coleman Hell. The reason he wrote “2 Heads” was to help others going through a difficult time, whether that be a break-up or other personal problems, he wanted his music to have an impact on others. It gave him pleasure to know that the response and comments on his song was positive, saying it changed their lives, making them feel good, and how the beat makes them want to dance. If you haven’t heard of Coleman Hell or listened to one of songs yet, I suggested you check him out and see if his music is something you can enjoy.
