Students from BYU-Idaho performed at Acoustic Cafe Sept. 29 in the Crossroads.
There were 18 acts. Some students performed covers of popular songs.
Makelle Alldredge, a senior studying communication, sang “American Honey” by Lady Antebellum.
“I have always loved performing. It gives me a chance to reflect the talents Heavenly Father has blessed me with,” Alldredge said.
Other performers debuted some of their original music.
“I have a singer-songwriter sister. She challenged me to write a ukulele song in a minor key because most people don’t. I just so happened to have given my heart to someone who didn’t know they had it. I did a dramatic number on how he destroyed it,” said Lacey Smith, a senior studying psychology.
For some of the performers, the singing relationship within their act has been short.
Michael Michie, a junior studying business management, performed a number with Hannah Merrell, a freshman studying art.
“Hannah randomly came to my door. I had no idea who she was. We jammed and it happened to be two nights before the audition, so we tried out,” Michie said.
For other acts, a long musical history was involved.
That was the case for friends Roland Erickson, a freshman majoring in general studies, and Chase Burk, a sophomore studying communication.
“My friend Roland and I have played together since we were 17. I love the feeling of all our preparation finally getting to play out. Getting to do this and feeling like we did it pretty close to flawless, that’s probably my favorite part,” Burk said.
Erickson agreed with Burk, and he said performing their music is gratifying.
“It’s one thing to jam in a living room, but getting on stage is the coolest feeling. Everything just goes calm. You can’t hear anything but your own music,” Erickson said.
Danielle Worwood, a sophomore majoring in general studies, and Brittany  Hurlbut, a senior studying elementary education, said that they made it their mission to bring fun to their performance of “Bills, Bills, Bills,” by Destiny’s Child.
“We just needed to liven things . We wanted to get people to laugh and remember the ‘90s,” Hurlbut said.
