Interview with Stewartville High School’s Nick Johnson
Nick Johnson has been making news all over the country because he wants Billy Joel to come to Stewartville! And his students are helping him...with #getbillytostewie! How'd it all come about? I went out to Stewartville to find out!
As this story puts it...
Johnson's admiration for Joel inspired choir students to tell him about it through #GetBillyToStewie, a Twitter campaign focused on getting the pop star to perform in their town. While it began as a joke, Stewartville students began to go to extremes and rally behind the cause.
"Mr. Johnson's whole career as a music teacher all started with Billy Joel, so it would be a huge inspiration if we could get him here," said Stewartville senior David Rysted.
