NWA was in for a surprise when these Celebrity Super Stars came to town:

Beyonce came to town and stood in formation at downtown Dickson St.

Taylor Swift had time to "Shake it Off," before entering the runway.

Harriet Tubman, continued to lead people to freedom from mental slavery.

Joe Louis and Muhammad Ali were separated to keep them from starting a Rumble in the Jungle!

Daisy Bates didnt' flinch as she led the Little Rock 9 into Central High School.

Selena Gomez came through town for Spring Breakers.

Rosa Parks said she was able to sit anywhere she wanted on the Greyhound bus toward Fayetteville.

Venus & Serena Williams  were spotted at the Fayetteville Athletic Club as they trained for the next US Open.

Diana Ross was asked by the Fayetteville Police Department to "Stop in the name of Love!

Oprah Winfrey said to the other celebrities, "You're Star! He's a Star! She's a Star! We're All Stars!

Ruby Bridges kept on walking to school despite the harshness of crowd outside. She said the police walked her to school everyday.

Etta James thought she would "rather go blind", but she was happy "At Last" when she walked the runway.

Michael Jackson, came to Thrill us and spin around like a Smooth Criminal before he had to Beat it!

After he moonwalked, he said, "Everybody..This is IT."

And that was all the Super Stars that graced the 2nd Annual Because of Them, We Can Cultural Showcase. 

All the Superstars and the audience joined hands and sung, "We Shall Overcome."

The Stars received their VIP Goody Bags and exited the building!

Autographs were done afterwards.

Taylor Swift and Beyonce had another engagement and did not stay for the whole performance. 

These kids did a super job!!

Thanks to the parents for their support and commitment. 

Thanks to the volunteers and support people who made it possible for these little kiddos to pretend they were stars for a day! It was really amazing!
