'Glee'ful singer-songwriter comes to Student Union

And on Friday, he will bring that energy to UNC.

The Carolina Union Activities Board is sponsoring former “Glee” cast member Noah Guthrie to perform at the Student Union in the Great Hall.

The event will be kicked off by the University’s very own Loreleis a cappella group.

There will also be a special musical performance by two members from the locally based nonprofit, Musical Empowerment.

Although this event is free and open to the public, tickets to attend are required.

There is a Facebook page for the event, and free Insomnia Cookies will be provided.

Senior Adeline Dorough plans to attend this event and is looking forward Guthrie’s performance.

“I love a cappella and my passion for music in general really drew me to the invite,” Dorough said.

“I am really excited for Noah Guthrie because he is so precious and so talented; he has a really great voice.”

Dorough is also pleased that the Loreleis will be performing.

“I think this will be a really cool partnership between the Loreleis and Noah Guthrie,” Dorough said.

“It’s a cool blend between our community and UNC and someone who is nationally recognized.”

Junior Boateng Kubi, the CUAB vice president of outreach, said this event is not one to be missed.

“This is an incredible event, and a lot of hard work has been put into it,” said Kubi.

“There are a lot of things to look forward to.”

Donations for Musical Empowerment, which offers free, private music lessons by UNC students to K-12 students from local low-income families, can be made at the door.

The website lists the nonprofit’s mission.

“Through one-on-one music lessons, Musical Empowerment nurtures meaningful relationships between collegiate mentors and communities of underserved children that build a foundation of confidence, creativity and self-discipline to create successful individuals,” the page said.

Senior Nylah Jimerson, chairperson of the fun committee at CUAB, said they have a history of bringing great performances to the University.

Jimerson said this event should meet past events’ bar of excellence.

“It’s typical of a CUAB event, in that you are going to have a good time and meet some different people,” Jimerson said. “It’s really awesome Noah was on ‘Glee’ and you really don’t get those types of names out here that often.”
