National Missionary Convention, the North American Christian
Convention, the Eastern Christian Convention, and various civic
gatherings. They have appeared on television and as repeat featured

designed to appeal to a variety of musical tastes. They have an
inspiring sacred repertoire, which they perform for church settings,
as well as a number of appealing secular and patriotic numbers for

humming a newly found favorite tune when they leave the energetic

by Mrs. Patti Hertzog, seeks to focus the audience’s attention upon
the special person of Jesus Christ. They choir seeks to express
Jesus’ joy and love through their songs. Donations accepted
