1. What is the purpose of this community choir?

We believe that music is an amazing force---with the power to bless, heal, and uplift people. The purpose of this choir is to take a group of people who love music, believe in its power, and desire to use it to bless hurting people.

 

Our goal is to achieve this purpose by producing and recording several projects that will consist of both cover songs and original songs and promote each project through TV and radio appearances, concerts and performances, and many other promotional activities.

 

 

2. Where and when will it perform?

We plan to perform as often as possible in a host of different venues including: church/worship services, concerts, community/charitable events, award shows, competitions,  and any other worthy opportunities that  present themselves.
