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.”

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
