The choir just returned from California last week where they wowed the judges and won gold in three categories; combined, men's and women's choirs. They were magnificent!
After a slow start leaving school they traveled all night on three buses and then spent the day at Universal Studios. How they stayed awake I'll never know.
The next day they competed at Fullerton College and took home the gold. They filled the stage and then made the entire concert hall ring. The sound was amazing! They were amazing!
After competing they went to the beach and froze. It was about 60*, overcast and windy. For some it was their first time at the beach and although it was cold it was still a lot of fun.
On Sunday they divided into three groups and sang at different rest home facilities. The residents really enjoyed their singing and the visits. It was a very positive experience.
In the evening they performed at a fireside for an LDS ward. They performed so well that many in the audience started crying because of the beauty and the Spirit they brought into the room.
On Monday they all went to Disneyland and had a great time. The park wasn't crowded and the weather was cool - a perfect way to end a great tour.
Many of the choir members have posted photos of the tour on Facebook and other places. Go take a look and see if you can find Mama screaming on Splash Mountain. (Now that's a great memory.)
Congrats to all.
