Westport Rock N' Warhawks release 'Thriller' video

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - It's close to midnight, and something evil's lurking in the dark.

No, it's not the ghost of Michael Jackson - it's the Westport Middle School Rock N' Warhawks.

The school's electric orchestra produced their own rendition of Jackson's iconic hit, Thriller.

The Rock N' Warhawks released their music video for the song on Friday.

"I strive to be innovative in creating meaningful musical experiences for my students," Westport Director of Orchestras Cory Zilisch said. "My goal is to create a lifelong appreciation of music, and our electric orchestra is just one more way to inspire students."

A GoFundMe account is set up to raise money for more instruments for the electric orchestra. Their goal is $8,000.
