One by one, musicians entered the stage to perform at Acoustic Cafe 2 Nov. 2.
Sylvia Belford, a sophomore studying psychology and a performer in the show, said she has often been inspired to become a performer.
“My grandfather was a musician, and music has always been a part of me since I was little,” she said.
Belford performed a song about her sister who had passed away.
“The hard things are meant to make you stronger,” Belford said. “When we lost her, I just didn’t know how to deal with it.”
She said that now that she is older, she is able to realize the important things of life.
“I didn’t know how to express how I felt in words. But having the ability to connect two things that I love into one helped inspire me in the songs I wrote,” she said.
Belford said her sister’s love for music is another thing that inspired her to become a musician.
Taylor Pierce, a sophomore studying business management, said he hoped the audience learned something from each performance.
“I hope the audience realizes that there is great talent here in Rexburg,” Pierce said. “In general, music is a big part of our lives.”
He said students should be more involved with the music events offered on campus to help them expand their talents.
