Northeast Michigan residents perform in Mock Rock concert to raise money for the class of 2024

Contestants perform "Beat It" by Michael Jackson

Numerous winners were crowned this weekend after performing in Hillman’s annual Mock Rock talent concert.

Contestants performed a number of electrifying acts, including popular songs like Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” and Megan Trainor’s “Dear Future Husband.*
Event organizer Roxanne LaFleche says community members always look forward to the event, and it continues to grow every year.

“I think it was eight years ago, somebody had the idea, one of the class advisors, how can we make the most money and have the best community time so we can bring everyone together and just have a good time. And it just snowballed from there. It gets bigger and better every year.”

LaFleche says the event couldn’t have been successful without the sponsors and hard work of the performers. Money raised from the event will go to the class of 2024’s senior trip, graduation, caps and gowns, and more.
