A school resource officer at a Louisiana high school is connecting with students through the art of music.
When students in the H.L. Bourgeois high school choir heard rumors that Sergeant Blake Guidry had skills on the piano they decided to see if it was true.
Junior Ennocence Williams told reporters, “I seen him walking the back hallways and I was like, ‘Can you come play piano for us because I heard you played really good I want to hear how you sound.”
Sergeant Guidry, who started playing at the age of three, protects the school during the day but at night he is a musician playing in a band.
After showing off his skills and discovering that he attended school with Ennocence’s mother, Sergeant Guidry made an inquiry of his own.
“I actually found out that I went to school with her mother back in the day, and it was cool to see if she could sing like her mother could,” Sergeant Guidry said.
That’s what set into motion the video of him accompanying Ennocence while she sang ‘The Greatest Love of All’.
After that the rest of the choir wanted a chance to sing along with Sergeant Guidry on the keys.
“It’s good to be able to see, for the public to see, that there is something more than this job than just putting people in jail. I can relate to them on a more personal level, and it’s satisfying for me to be able to do that.” Sergeant Guidry said.
