HERRIMAN, Utah -- Music filled the hallways of Herriman High School on Monday as dancing, hip hop violinist and YouTube artist, Lindsey Stirling, filmed her newest music video in the school's auditorium.

"I wanted to make this video a different kind of experience. I wanted it to be something where I love motivational speaking and filming the video I thought it would be really fun to get some of the community kids involved so they can learn," Stirling said.

More than a dozen students were able to accompany Stirling, a Brigham Young University graduate, in a Les Miserable compilation.

"At first it was kinda scary because it's like, wow Lindsey Stirling, and I'm super excited because I've never met her before. I've been watching all of her videos and everything since she first started and it's really great to be able to meet her in person," said Ashlin Patterick a senior at Herriman High.

Stirling’s presence at the school had many of the students all a buzz.

"A lot of kids were just chattering trying to point out if it was really her so it was pretty funny to see kids so star struck and trying to grasp the concept of a celebrity here and stuff," said senior Tanner Guss.

The video is set to release in mid-February on Stirling’s YouTube channel, which has more than 880 million views.

"It's one of those win-win-win -- it's helping me make this really fun video it's going to be beautiful, the kids are excited, the school is excited, I love when everyone is excited about the project, that's what makes magic," Stirling said.

Stirling also made time to talk with students and answer questions.

"I'm always excited for an opportunity where our kids can have a professional experience and see how professionals do their job. High school is all about the preparation for that next step in life so giving them this opportunity was just exciting," said Rich Price, assistant principal at Herriman.
