While Buhler students were taking a day off on Monday, Jan. 21, in honor of Martin Luther King Jr., varsity choir and Buhler singers got dressed up to perform at the community MLK service held at the Second Missionary Baptist Church. The performance took place at 2 p.m. The songs that were performed were “Worthy To Be Praised!,” “I Sing Because I’m Happy,” and “MLK”.
