From Deanna Lloyd Jennings, BHS '67... very exciting!
Dear Family and Friends,
Just thought you might want to know that the John Burroughs choir, "Powerhouse" will be performing on the TV show, "America's Got Talent" this Tuesday night, August 9th on NBC from 9:00-11:00 PM. (at least that's the time according to my TV listing).
They will be a part of the online competition groups. Unfortunately, the show will only allow Brendan to use 30 of his 50 students on the program. Three days later a smaller group of 15 students has been invited to Beijing, China to be a part of the International Children's Festival a cultural/artistic exchange program (all expenses paid). If the America's Got Talent group gets voted through to the next level they would perform on Tuesday, August 30 after the smaller group has returned from China.
Yes, this is really exciting and so unexpected...we're still pinching ourselves! I'm such a proud Mom and I think all of you will be surprised at how talented these kids are! They work so hard and are such great people.
I hope all of you are happy and healthy and enjoying your summer.
Deanna Jennings :-)
