Cumming, Georgia – Pinecrest young men want the young women
at their school to know one thing – virtue is
beautiful. And they are saying so in a new video.
In early fall, 2013, a video from the young
men at Lone Peak State High School in Utah went
viral, popular enough for Catholic chastity speakers Jason and Crystalina
Evert’s website. (It even made some secular news.)
The song, Virtue makes you Beautiful, is a remake of
the hit from boy band One Direction called That’s what
Makes You Beautiful.
Now the students at Pinecrest Academy have
made their own version, and according to Vivian Heard, Communications
Coordinator for the school, it has gone a bit viral
on its own. As of the last week of October,
2013, it has more than 13,100 views and about 250
shares from the Pinecrest Facebook page.
Vivian saw the Lone
Peak State version online and shared it with some co-workers,
saying she wished Pinecrest students could create something like this.
“I never followed up nor offered my services!” she said.
“Long-time Pinecrest mom Laurie Flanigan had seen it, too, and
took the initiative to gather a group together to make
the project happen.”
Laurie enlisted the help of Pinecrest dad,
Dennis Ehle, who designed and launched the Pinecrest sports web
site, www.paspn.org, and creates the school’s “pump up” videos
for football. With the help of choreographer and Pinecrest mom,
Kim Bass, and 12 athletes, scholars and student leaders, they
put together the video in just two days.
