Watch midwxst perform at His Former High School’s Prom

As most of Lyrical Lemonade’s regular readers most likely already know, we typically cover new releases in terms of projects, songs, videos, and other things in a similar vein. This means that I don’t often venture off into other territories and write about different things, but some things are just way too appealing for me to not talk about, and I love when I find something that is just so pleasing, I have no choice but to write about it.

This might not be a surprise to many people, but midwxst is one of my personal favorite newcomers in the whole music business, and while he has seen his fame skyrocket over the last year or so, I can say from the bottom of my heart that if there is one person who deserves all of these accolades, it’s Edgar. In another breath, when someone like him is an alma mater of your high school, I have always been curious about how much of a deal that is, or if it’s just another fun fact in your back pocket. I mean, although Saba is a few years older than me, he actually went to my high school, but he was only beginning to make waves by the time I graduated, so I feel like the feeling would be different if they were literally your classmate as they started to blow up.

Well, it is clear that the students at midwxst’s old high school have all the love in the world for the young phenom because he just released a video of a surprise performance he did at their prom this year and the building was absolutely bumping. From the moment he was announced, the entire student body chanted his name like he won the Super Bowl, and then he proceeded to tear the house down with what I’m sure was a show-stopping performance based on the compelling clips that were shown.

My favorite part of the whole video, though, was afterward when he linked up with one of his old instructors. During this moment, the two shared some of the kindest words in the world with one another, and during a massive embrace, the teacher earnestly told midwxst just how proud he was of his accomplishments, and it completely gave me goosebumps, I’m not going to lie. This is just one of those feelgood videos that you certainly don’t want to miss out on, especially if you’re a fan of midwxst, so make sure you take a minute to check out the behind-the-scenes footage of the sensational talent returning to Park Tudor High School to put on the performance of a lifetime for his old classmates!
