Cate Blaes

Cate Blaes missing her good old friends.

Leena Darwish, Managing Editor

Cate Blaes is a sophomore who has been singing for 3 years in her middle school choir. This was her 1st year doing Coffee House. Blaes performed Old Friend on Thursday night, on Stage 1.

Reason for performing: “I’m singing Old Friend by Ben Rector, and I actually heard the song, two days before auditions, and I just decided I’m going to do it. I really like Ben Rector, he’s one of my favorite artists and I just like the song.”

Advice for others wanting to audition for Coffee House: “I recommend practicing a lot, it’s not the best decision to choose the song two days before, but it is nerve-racking, but once you start singing, it’s fun.”
