The choir’s history includes performances with the Rev. James Cleveland, the Rev. John P. Kee, Ann Nesby and Dorothy Norwood. Its second place finish at the 2006 National Black College Alumni Hall of Fame Gospel Explosion Choir Competition earned the choir an invite to 19th Annual Dr. Bobby Jones Gospel Music Industry Retreat in Hollywood, Fla.
