Some great voices to be sure. Disrupted by the clappers? Why cover up their voices? There are some with good voices that choose the wrong song. Loved those who not only could sing but also sell their songs with their movement and stage presence. Great Job to all who brought it out and put it on the line. Some of those girls should take their talents to the Miss America system and win $2000 to $3000 in talent scholarship money! Great school allowing great students to excell!

It was great! They had a full house and the performers did an awesome job as did everyone working behind the scenes. It was a really nice production. I didn't envy the judges their jobs. It would have been very hard to decide. They all did a great job, but several did an outstanding job.

Does anyone know if the chorus is selling a video of the entire production?
