2015 marked the 50th anniversary of the Okemos class of 1965. As part of the celebration, the class toured the "new" High School built in 1961 and now a middle school. That fall, the middle school play "Annie" was scheduled. Staring Annie, was 7th grader, Olivia Terry. 50 years earlier, the class of '65 was greatly involved with the first Okemos musical, "Bye-Bye Birdie". To commemorate the occasion, Olivia performed several selections from the upcoming "Annie" and other tunes. Later that year, Rod Ellis '65 took Olivia to a sound studio and had her record those tunes. He then had the sound track put together with pictures from the performance and in the recording studio. Olivia also sang all the parts by dubbing over the chorus. Rod Ellis
