Hundreds of Kiwi students perform inspirational 'This is Me' cover

we love 12/02/2018

An inspiring performance by four hundred school-leavers in South Auckland has wowed Kiwis online.

The students, part of Auckland University of Technology (AUT) South Campus, performed the hit song from 'The Greatest Showman' as part of a UniPrep programme last week.

The hit song, currently up for an Oscar, is performed on the show by actress Keala Settle, who is of Maori descent.

The choir practiced 'This is Me' for three hours over two days before a final taped performance on Friday.

Since being posted on Facebook, it's been shared more than 15,000 times.

AUT's UniPrep programme is a five-week programme that supports students transitioning from high school to tertiary studies, helping them realise and release their potential. And this song is the perfect summary of that.
