Statement on the Impact of COVID-19
From all of us at KidSingers, we hope you are doing well in these uncertain times as we respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please know we are thinking and praying for our KidSingers' well being, and yours as well. We remain hopeful and steadfast with KidSingers' mission of changing lives through the transformative power of music.
At the top of our minds are the students and the families we serve. We are keenly aware how much our families rely on us, and how the most vulnerable are suffering. We realize our families – and we ourselves – regard our services as essential. We are reminded that in times like these how much it means to us that our students call KidSingers their “second home.”
A few updates to share
Our KidSingers’ staff are staying in touch with our students and their families through regular phone calls, texts, emails, and virtual gatherings as we share with them our plans to move the program forward, as we remain flexible with the ever-shifting challenges of having group rehearsals and concerts. At this time of adversity, we know that together we can do much to continue KidSingers’ motto of "harmony for a better world."
KidSingers 2020 College Scholarship Awards:
Our May 9th Spring Concert has been canceled this year because of the COVID-19 crisis. Along with our inspiring and beautiful music, another exciting part of this concert has always been awarding of college scholarships. We still endeavor to award these scholarships, and we are developing a creative plan on how to do that. We'll keep you posted.
Events and Performances:
As mentioned above, it was with a heavy heart that we had to cancel our 23rd annual Spring Concert on May 9th. Additionally, because of the shifting tide of what is safe and what is not safe for larger gatherings, we have had to postpone our June 27th Benefit, and our July 18th KidSingers' auditions. But, we fully intend to think outside the box and take advantage of alternative ways to continue raising funds so as to serve our wonderful youth. Stay tuned!
Together we can do it!
"We're All in This Together," the closing song from the movie, High School Musical, has become a national meme of sorts during our journey together through this health crisis. We hope you will KidSingers' performance of this rousing piece from our 2018 Spring Concert. You may also tune in to our 2019 Spring Concert and Nixon Library Holiday Concert.
Together we will move forward through this unique time in our world. Together, we will continue to give our gift of music to a world in need of hope and renewal. And together, we will celebrate the love of collective achievement as KidSingers blazes the trail forward through the storm to build a beautiful tomorrow. With that in mind, I want to leave you with a link to this powerful performance from KidSingers’ 2018 Spring Concert. Please watch “Beautiful City” from the smash Broadway musical, Godspell.
From all of us at KidSingers, we are grateful for your love, continued support, and good wishes.
Paul and the KidSinger family
