Elbert Mock ’13 and Daniel Lieu ’13 were recognized as the third place winners at the Apollo Night: Open Mic Competition. The competition is part of Pacific’s Black History Month Celebration. Mock sang and Lieu played the guitar as they performed an acoustic version of Brian McKnight’s “Back at One”.
“Many times, I find it tough to gauge my own performance compared with the show’s number of quality acts; I really did not know how we compared to the other performers. It definitely humbled and excited me to walk away with a prize. I thoroughly enjoyed playing music with Elbert and representing the Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences,” says Lieu.
As the top three performers, Mock and Lieu also performed as opening acts for this year’s Black History Month keynote speaker Hill Harper during his visit to campus on Saturday, February 26, 2011.
