Sing Song is a rich musical tradition at ACU that began in 1957 and includes class and club performances with hosts and hostesses performing between the acts. The hosts and hostesses will be singing a variety of songs ranging from “I’m a Believer” and “Don’t Stop Believin'” to “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You” and “You’ve Got a Friend in Me.” This year’s hosts and hostesses include:• Coy Greathouse, senior youth and family ministry major from Alvin, • Adrienne Linge, senior vocal music education major from San Antonio, • Jessica Patterson, senior nursing and musical theatre major from Abilene, • Donovan Plummer, senior human communications major from Mesquite, • Jennifer Rasco, senior elementary education major from Abilene, and • Sam Souder, junior worship ministry major from Arlington. The six auditioned and were chosen from a group of approximately 54 students. Seven judges critiqued those auditioning on vocal talent, stage presence, vocal blending, sight-reading and choreography. New to this year’s show is the return of the Trojans social club to the Sing Song stage, and for the second year, the mixed voices category will include a group consisting of students from the International Students Association, Essence of Ebony and Hispanos Unidos. “With over 8,000 visitors that come to Abilene to see Sing Song, we are excited to provide this amazing opportunity to see the heart of ACU,” said Woolfolk.Show times are Friday, Feb. 20, at 8 p.m. and Saturday, Feb. 21, at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Tickets for “believe.” are available from $14 to $22 and can be purchased online at www.acu.edu/singsong.
