Diamond Marching Band earns national props

Name a marching-band cover you absolutely need to hear. According to an article in USA Today, that would be the Temple University Diamond Marching Band’s rendition of 5 Seconds of Summer’s “She Looks So Perfect,” performed during halftime at the Temple vs. Navy football game on Sept. 6. The piece was written by Chynna Mela, a senior journalism student at Temple, and originally appeared on the website Surviving College.

“Most marching bands wouldn’t think to choose this Aussie band’s tune as their key halftime performance, but we’re glad they did,” wrote Mela. “It is clear from the cheers that playing the not-so-boy-band hit was a total crowd pleaser. Way to go, Temple Owls, and we can’t wait until your next performance.”

The next chance to enjoy the Diamond Marching Band live will be at the Temple vs. Delaware State game on Saturday, Sept. 20.
