Some students now get to check their social media feeds for videos of school administrators showing off their “hidden” talents.
Two recent videos posted by the principal at Union Pointe Academy in Kentucky have not only been a hit with local school kids, but have also gone viral online.
In the first “music video” principal Chad Caddell creates his own rendition of Mariah Carey’s “Hero.”
“So I’m reaching out to you and I gotta say…the school is cancelled for today. Go back to bed and go out and play,” he sings.
“Play some Xbox and smile, drink hot chocolate for a while, you can thank me really soon, here’s a snow day just for you.”
Caddell admitted to People Magazine that he loves Mariah Carey and coming up with the new lyrics to the 90s classic was a breeze.
“I sat down, and in 10 minutes I wrote the lyrics, and then my wife and I went on our porch, filmed it, and it was ready to go.”
