Martin High School Lip Dub Raises Money For Cancer Research

ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) – It may have looked like a massive party in the halls of Arlington Martin High School, but it was actually something even cooler.

More than 33-hundred students and 300 faculty donned costumes and danced with instruments, while a camera crew rolled on it all, for a one-take music video.

The video of the so-called “lip dub” is now up on You-Tube.

The students sold pledges for every view it gets online, and all of the donations will be used for cancer research in honor of fellow student Taylor Helland. She is battling a rare form of colon cancer. Last month, we told you how arch rival Arlington High School’s band adopted Taylor as an honorary member, to support her as she fights illness.

“I wrote to Jerry Jones and Mark Cuban and I didn’t hear from them,” says Taylor’s dad, Bob Helland.

“So Martin High School picked up the ball and they’re gonna get some funds down for cancer research, which is exactly what we need.”

This is the second lip-dub filmed inside Martin High School.

Last year’s video received 160-thousand views.
