Rihanna visits Barrington High School
International music superstar Rihanna made her much-anticipated visit to Barrington High School Friday evening before her concert at the United Center. The pop singer was scheduled to appear at 2 p.m., but traffic woes delayed her arrival until 5:35 p.m.
Rihanna spoke to the crowd for 12 minutes.
The school’s television and video students earned the visit by winning first place in the national “Shine Bright Like a Diamond” contest, which is named after Rihanna’s hit 2012 song, “Diamonds.”
The Barrington Courier-Review along with Barrington High School students, parents and staff are live blogging her appearance.
