Singer, songwriter, and guitarist for Los Lobos, Cesar Rosas gave some of the Morton East students a moment to inform them about his life and his music industry. He has earned a total of 5 grammy's and had a chance to play his hit song, "La Bamba". Mr Rosas was able to give every music student something they can take in and use it towards they're own endeavors. The students played a few songs for Cesar and towards the end he joined them.
