SHEREBURNE – An audience of approximately 400 parents and students welcomed motivational speaker and original musician Jared Campbell to the Sherburne–Earlville High School auditorium stage on Thursday, January 30 who not only shared his music, but also his thoughts on bullying.
Armed with his honed singing voice and a knack for storytelling, the twenty-something singer-songwriter with bed head and thick rimmed glasses presented “The Blue Project,” an interactive live concert tailored for K-12 students that reinforces practical life lessons.
In addition to Campbell’s authentic and down-to-earth approach, his brand of witty humor and antic-like crowd participation kept the large room engaged for more than a hour Thursday night.
Campbell presented his age-appropriate message through a series of short, meaningful stories accompanied with a number of songs that were carefully crafted and drawn from personal experiences with bullying and the trials of growing up.
With the aid of his laptop computer, his message of humility was reinforced by broadcasting short videos and images to accompany his works.
