OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) – If you’re the Vivace Girls Choir and COVID-19 cancels your state singing competition, you readjust and sing to a different tune.
“It was really disappointing because I really love singing in front of people and it was like, oh no we can’t, boo!” said singer Somer Schultz.
âI was a little sad because I was really excited to compete, I had never done a real competition and thought it would be a great opportunity,â said singer Anyah Samuels.
Due to COVID-19 their state singing competition is canceled, but still wanting their voices to be heard, they changed keys and continued to rehearse.
They found a new avenue to showcase their skills and hard work.
âAlthough it was difficult when we heard the cancellation, it was an incredible opportunity, at the end of the day, to say that we can still show it and that we can do it in a way that is safe and that allows these talented girls, âthe choir said. conductor Monica Koffi.
They decided to bring a bit of Hollywood to the Midwest and make a music video.
âWhen I heard we were doing a music video, I thought I was going to be famous,â singer Katie Andersen said.
âI thought making a music video was a really good idea, so I’m happy that I could devote more time to the music video to be successful,â Samuels said.
âI can pose in the video,â Andersen said.
Music videos and studio time cost money, so to fundraise they have an upcoming fundraiser and when you attend that fundraiser you will hear their amazing voices.
The girls tap into their other creative side to help raise funds and make crafts and baked goods.
âI’m really excited for this because when it comes to crafting I get very creative,â Samuels said.
âI make crispy rice treats, brownies, and frito fruckies. You put frits and a peanut butter caramel sauce and then chocolate, they’re pretty good, it’s like sweet and salty, âSchultz said.
âWe make puppy food and sugar scrubs and they smell really good and they really work too,â Andersen said.
As well as being excited about the video itself, the location and wardrobe also seem to be getting a lot of excitement.
âI’m really excited to sing the song and wear the dresses, it’s going to be really pretty,â Samuels said.
Their goal for this event is to raise $ 1,000.
The bake sale will take place this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Grace Life Bible Church in Omaha located at 10606 Burt Circle.
