Local choir sings in World Choir Games debut

The Voices of Warren County made its World Choir Games debut Thursday afternoon on stage in the Aronoff Center's P&G Hall.

The music-loving group of developmentally disabled adults started singing together in 2008.

"They've been all over. Different counties, different programs, they've done so much since we started, we never thought we'd be at the World Choir Games and here we are," says choir director Ellen Hudson.

Soloist Charlene Hollandsworth says she was thankful and excited the entire group got to perform on stage.

"It makes us really happy. I love it," says Hollandsworth.

"Many of these choir members you couldn't even hear them talk and now they're singing, they're moving, they're dancing and for me it's like a dream come true and I know it's a dream come true for them," says Hudson.

A dream come true to sing at the games and meet so many choirs from so many countries.
