LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Sacred Heart Academy students enjoyed a special concert Wednesday.

Australian pop star Cody Simpson performed a 30 minute acoustic show sponsored by Louisville radio station 98.9.

Students at Sacred Heart Academy texted 115,000 messages to the radio station to win the concert. This was not Simpson's first performance in Louisville. He has also been on stage at the KFC Yum! Center.

"I love doing big arenas like that and then to break down a little bit and just hop on my guitar and be at a school," said Simpson.

The students were able to have a meet and greet with Simpson after the concert.
