The performance took over the lobby of the children's hospital Tuesday afternoon.
Students shared parts of the wave which is something fans do during Hawkeye football games- they turn to the children's hospital and wave to patients. But the patients do not get that experience during the winter months.
The director of the show choir, Tyler Hagy, who serves as the high school's Director of Choral Activities, said the brief show was all in an effort to give back- a lesson he wanted to carry over to the students that were performing.
"Doing something for someone else with nothing attached to that," Hagy said. "And for them to see firsthand some of these people that we speak about in this show, that they can have that personal connection."
Hagy said they will perform the show for the last time on Sunday, March 3 at City High's auditorium at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. He said people can still buy tickets online or can buy them at the door.
