Cheerleader with Down Syndrome Stars in Finalist Video for GMA’s Katy Perry ‘Roar’ ContestPosted: October 9, 2013
Arizona’s Verrado High School entry into the Good Morning America/Katy Perry Roar contest has gone viral, in part because of one special cheerleader. The instructions for the “Good Morning America” Katy Perry music video contest were simple: Students had to submit a music video for Perry’s song “Roar” featuring fellow students up to two minutes long by Oct. 1.
Perry will perform a concert at the winning school on Oct. 25, which also will be broadcast on “Good Morning America.”
The High School’s video tells the story of 18-year-old senior Megan Squire who was born with Down syndrome. Squire has been on the cheerleading team for four years and is now on the varsity squad. The video re-enacts Squire’s attempt to get on the team.
