Unforgettable…
Once in a lifetime opportunity…
A dream…
Incredible…
Overwhelming…
Senior Jordan Engle was in the front row at Chastain Amphitheater when Idina Menzel performed in July. As the singer, most famous for bringing Frozen’s “Let It Go” to life, started to sing a popular duet from Rent called “Take Me or Leave Me,” she asked if anyone in the crowd knew the words to the song. Jordan’s hand went straight up, along with many in the audience. At that moment, Idina locked eyes with Jordan and invited our very own Mustang to come up on stage and sing the song with her. At the end, they received a standing ovation!
Reflecting on her experience, Jordan says, “Being up there was incredible. The lights hitting me and the crowd cheering as we stood on stage together, holding hands, was one of the best experiences I could have ever imagined. She is my role model and has been for a long time so it was an unforgettable experience. Afterwards, she said I had an incredible voice and that she has never had a better duet partner!”

#IMAMUSTANG. On the stage. At Chastain. Congratulations, Jordan, for seizing the moment.
