Interview with Stewartville High School’s Nick Johnson #getbillytostewie (VIDEO)
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? 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.
