Charlotte-area high school cheerleaders featured on Drake song

Phillip O. Berry's gold squad cheerleaders can be heard on the track "7am On Bridle Path."

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Eyes and ears are on Charlotte after an area high school's cheerleaders got a major co-sign from a music giant.

Phillip O. Berry Academy of Technology's gold squad cheerleaders can be heard on the track "7 am On Bridle Path" from Drake's album "Certified Lover Boy."

On the track, the 2017 gold squad can be heard chanting “Gold Squad get it crunk." The chant is one of their most notable school cheers. 

The CMS magnet school is named after the Charlotte resident and activist of the same name who, in 1972, became the first African-American to be elected to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education. 

He served on the Board for ten years and was elected Chairman in 1976, servicing in that capacity until 1982.
