WEST CALDWELL, NJ - "Be true to yourself." Those were just some of the words of advice relayed to students in James Caldwell High School choral director Elsie Timpson’s classes when they were surprised with a special visitor on Tuesday, June 3. Up  and coming pop star Tiffany Houghton spoke to the choral classes about her singing career, the music industry, and following your dream.

Houghton, a Dallas native who released her debut single “High” on August 13, 2013, moved to Nashville right out of high school and now lives in Los Angeles. She is a singer, songwriter with MTV’s Buzzworthy and has released three new acoustic songs and videos. Dubbed “America’s Newest Sweetheart”, her YouTube video of “High” has exceeded 1.2 million views.

“The students were very excited to speak with someone who is just starting to make a name for herself in the industry,” said Timpson. “This was a chance for the students to find out first-hand what is really involved in a beginning a successful music career.”

In November, 11th District residents will have the opportunity to choose a new congressional representative who will not only serve as a critical check on the federal level, but also determine how our distract fares ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
