PRYOR, Okla. -

A group of students in Pryor have turned their free performance of the Lion King into way to give back to families with sick kids.

Students asked the audience at all their performances this week to bring money to donate to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The kids usually perform a musical but 13-year-old Hallee Cowan came up with the idea to use this performance as a way to raise money for people in need of help.

"It has just always been my mission to make someone’s life a little bit better every single day and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to help a kid get their one wish come true," said Cowan.

"I wish people could see the goodness that is happening in the world. We see so much of the bad. Here in my choir class there is a lot of goodness and sweetness," said Pryor Middle School Choir Teacher Mariam Pilgrim.

This group already has two sold-out performances, so they added a third on Monday at 7 p.m.

Tickets are free and you can bring your donations to the show.
