PVHS Student Sings National Anthem

July 22, 2022

Pioneer Valley High School senior Makai Copado has been selected to sing the national anthem before the Live To Rock Concert at the Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles on July 25.

The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and features Skid Row and Warrant, with special guest Quiet Riot and Kip Winger Unplugged, according to fair officials.

I am super excited to be able to participate in such an exciting event,’’ Copado said. “This is a very big accomplishment for me and I couldn’t be more ecstatic. I had seen a post on Instagram about how spots were open for local singers and I decided that it would be a great opportunity for me to audition. So, I sent in a video.’’

Copado recently dominated the role of “Danny Zuko” in the classic musical Grease at the school’s outdoor amphitheater. The performance included Santa Maria Joint Union High School District students from ERHS, SMHS and PVHS.
