"I want to join the choir because I am very passionate about singing and it is something I really love to do. I especially love singing in choirs because I like to see what it’s like when a whole bunch of different people with different talents come together to make something amazing. Also I like to hear all of the voices blend together and sound as one Because it is like food for your ears. It also is fun to sing in a choir when people are jus as passionate and love to sing just as much as you do too. I also want to join the choir because I want to be apart of a choir that is outside of school, sings a wider variety of music and has kids from all kinds of backgrounds and all different ages."

"Being in the choir is important to me because without this choir I wouldn't be at the singing level I'm at today, also want to be at the mentality level I'm at today. I may not always tell everyone or even show it but this choir has got me through some things. Because whenever I think of one of our songs or when I'm up on stage with this choir, it brings me pure joy and a smile on my face."

"It gives me the opportunity to share my gift with my peers and to support my peers. It also has help me to make new friends and build relationships with people. Lastly, being apart of this choir has helped me to practice my craft and to make it a priority."
