Sharpsburg residents ‘Makin' Music’ at Freed-Hardeman

The Newnan Times-Herald

Freed-Hardeman University’s “Makin’ Music” extravaganza moved to a one-night-only livestream performance this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Two Cowetans – Grace Anne Butt and Daniel England, both of Sharpsburg – were part of the team that helped the annual show generate the largest audience in its history despite premiering virtually.

Butt is majoring in biochemistry, and England is majoring in biology at the Henderson, Tennessee school.

With nearly 12,000 unique viewers, the online show generated the biggest audience ever to watch a “Makin' Music” production.
