Becky Bruce reportingMurray High School is coming together today for its annual Arts Fest, "American Idol" style.
David Archuleta was one of the talented students who provided music for Arts Fest last year, so it's only fitting this year's event include a little "idol worship."
"They're selling ice cream cones over there. We've got one of the competitors from Tracy Aviary's ‘Avian Idol' competition with singing birds," said Murray School District spokeswoman D. Wright.
Wright says there's plenty more idol worship on tap next week. "We will bring down the big screen in the auditorium so the students and their families can view," she explained.
In fact, the school moved a planned choral concert to an hour earlier on Tuesday so everyone can watch David sing. "We're looking at some community participation. Everyone's welcome to come and just see how David does, and hopefully how David wins!" Wright said.
Wednesday night, the school will have big screens turned on in both the auditorium and the gym for overflow seating.
