The program, titled Georgia On My Mind, opened with the school's chorus singing the James Weldon Johnson melodic poem "Lift Every Voice and Sing" and a multicultural dance number. The production was split into three eras: Oh Freedom (covering the 1700s to the 1940s) which included a performance of "Amazing Grace"; Civil Rights (1950s to 1970s) featuring the chorus' performance of "Climbin' Up The Mountain"; and Yes We "All" Can (1980s to 2000s), which closed the ceremony with a segment highlighting the evolution of rap and R&B in Georgia.
One youngster even donned a bow tie and straight-haired wig during the tribute to channel 3 Stacks for a special rendition of the OutKast 2013 chart-topper "Hey Ya!" Performances to tracks by Kris Kross, Ludacris, Bow Wow and Xscape were also incorporated.
