Ramona Convent Secondary School sophomore Aelena Gillies had a wish come true on Feb. 1 when she was chosen to sit in on the drums at The Killers rock concert at the Staples Center.
Aelena went to the concert with a sign in hand asking to play drums on stage with her favorite band to a packed stadium of 21,000 fans. She was chosen and became the first female to ever land this opportunity.
“Having music somehow in my life, whether teaching music lessons or playing live in a band, or something in between, is IT for me,” she said. “It's what I want to do for the rest of my life.”
Aelena is the drummer for the school’s liturgical music celebrations and is a talented member of the Music & Charity Club.
