Linfield alum soothes freshmen (with vocals)
Students and families gathered in the Oak Grove on Aug 23 at 7:30pm for the Cat Cab All Star performance. Linfield alumni Jesse Goergen returned for this special performance and brought up to the stage a few special guests to help throughout the concert.
The mezzo-soprano has performed at numerous Cat Cabs while attending Linfield and also opened for Macklemore this past May at Wildstock.
Goergen performed covers of popular songs such as the popular song “Mercy” by Duffy and Adele hit “Someone Like You.” She gave it her own spin by mixing it with the hook of “Wild One” by Flo Rida.
During the performance, Goergen also included some of her original songs including her popular song “Miss You,” which she wrote when she and senior Evan O’Kelly first came together.
“It’s always interesting what ending I do because I do it differently every time,” Goergen said to the audience after belting out the last line.
O’Kelly and alumni Jeremy Moll played guitar in the background. Moll performed “Every Little Step” by Bobby Brown with Goergen. Senior Nic Miles joined the group on stage to play the summer hit “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen.
Goergen closed the show with the song “Wagon Wheel” by Jack Ruby Presents, a group of Linfield alum.
Cat Cabs are held every Thursday in the Fred Meyer Lounge and are sponsored by the Linfield Activities Board. The musical entertainment chair Evan O’Kelly helps choose performances from students and outside performers.
