Wilderness Walk: One more week

Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

It’s one week till the big draft party! Be there! It’s gonna be a blast!

In the meantime, we have some news, and this great tune form "Spring Awakening" which is a musical you should definitely check out if you haven’t. This is sung by Melchior (Mel-Kee-Or) after his friend Moritz passes away. Mortise was a socially awkward young man who was mistreated by his family and school teachers.

In any case, it’s an interesting show and you should certainly check it out if you have not. Very good and great music.
