The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus helped a Tulsa girl get a jump start at making her dreams come true.

15 year old Tawatha Jones from Union Intermediate won a song writing contest and spent the day on a state of the art recording studio on wheels. Tawatha and her friends learned how to write and record lyrics and got to make a video.

She says she wants to pursue music, but doesn't have a specific star she wants to be like. "I'm going to be the next Tawatha. I'm going to be me. I'm going to have a whole different ora and motive about me. I'm going to go out there and be unique and just do me."

Tawatha won out of more than 70 entries across Tulsa County. Many other students also got to tour the hi-tech bus.
