Titan Croons About Olympic Gymnasts

Aug. 13, 2012

The USA's gold-medal-winning women's gymnastics team has legions of enthusiastic fans, but few are as talented as CSUF musical theatre alum Noah Rivera, a Broadway veteran.

Before the London games, the singer/dancer/actor was so inspired by the gymnasts' prospects that he created a "go for the gold" video sendoff, posting it on YouTube a few ​days before their historic victory in London. It's two minutes and 36 seconds of fluid flip-and-tumble imagery set to music with Rivera singing a parody of Justin Bieber's "Boyfriend." He titled it "... in Honor of the USA Women's Gymnastics Team! We Are Proud Of You!" So far, more than 8,600 have "liked" the tribute.

Rivera will be among the musical theatre alumni on campus Sept. 8 for "Opening Night," showcasing Titan talent for donors to the College of the Arts. For details, contact Milly Heaton, director of development, 657-278-7695.
