As students noisily streamed into third period honors concert choir class at Irondale High School the morning of Sept. 30, one student took a seat at the piano and played some familiar tunes.
Amid the hubbub, he started with Guns N' Roses' "Sweet Child O' Mine" before segueing into Journey's "Don't Stop Believing." Large swaths of the 70 or so students in the class spontaneously chimed in, singing: "Do-on't stop, beliiiiiieving..."
They sang well. There was a palpable buzz in the air. Class started at 9:31.
