Get ready to witness the multitude of talents that Diamond Bar High School has at Apollo Night. This Friday, a variety of singers, dancers and even a magician will perform their acts starting at 7 p.m. in the school’s theater.

Organized by the Black Student Union, Apollo Night is an annual talent show to showcase the gifts of students and to call attention to the diversity of DBHS’s student population. Performers had to audition to be selected.

To start off the event with a bang, BSU will be conducting their traditional opening act that differs from year to year. The act focuses on entertaining the audience through pop culture references, as seen in last year’s parody of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

“The opening act is the biggest part of the night and it’ll be really entertaining. It’s also a great way for everyone to see BSU and understand our culture and where we come from,” BSU leader senior Samantha Simmons said.

The showcase will include various solo singing performances from choir students Rosemarie Grady singing “Take Me to Church” by Hozier, Soumya Kar singing “Dear No One” by Tori Kelly, as well as other performances by Alex Silva, Brandon Marantz, Allyson Cantimbuhan and more. Additionally, the event entails a magic act by Andrew Hou, a piano solo by Ashley Bell, and a dance performance from the Hula Team.
Tickets are selling now for $8 during lunch in the upper quad and during first period in Room 404. They will also be sold for $10 at the door.

“Everyone can expect a really great time. Students can get to know the unknown and different talents that DBHS students have,” Simmons said.
