Students at 8th Street Middle School in Tifton had the chance to hear the story of a country music star firsthand on Tuesday.
Singer John Berry, who moved to the area a year and a half ago, visited the school to talk to students about careers in the industry and how becoming a music artist is possible.
Berry says no matter what the kids want to be when they grow up, it's important to realize that success isn't gauged by money and materials but happiness.
During the assembly, Berry spoke to students about his big break and how everyone has a path to their own success. He also played his biggest hit, "Your Love Amazes Me" as well as some of his other popular songs.
Teachers at the school say this is a privilege to have Berry speak to their students and hope it helps them realize there are many careers available.
