The Detroit Youth Choir is on the brink of their big break.  They’ve qualified to take the stage on a huge reality TV show, but not until they raise the money to get there.

These young performers have put in the work and now they need your help to go all the way.

“Something like America’s Got Talent, I believe would change lives,” Choir Director Anthony White said. “I believe this would give hope to the young people in the City of Detroit that yes we do have talent yes we can go to the next level.”

They send in their audition tape and has been invited to the big stage.

“The tape was submitted and I got a call back that said you made it past the first part through the tape, so now we’re planning on going to the stage and that’s a big step for us,” White said.

But that step is in Ohio and they need $5,000 to get there.

“Detroit Youth Choir is a gem right here in the City of Detroit and a lot of people don’t know about us,” White said.

For the kids, this is what they’ve worked so hard for.

“It’s a lot of work, we practice every week, sometimes rehearsals are hard and everything but the outcome is definitely worth the work,” singer Cherish Pittman said.

It’s the stuff their dreams are made of.

“It’s a family, it’s not just a choir, we work together, we always help each other and we try our best to make each other better and stronger,” singer Brandon Hill said.

But this dream has a deadline and without the funds the opportunity will pass them by.

“This trip for America’s Got Talent, this would change lives tremendously not only for our young people, their families so please donate to the Detroit Youth Choir as we travel,” White said. “Vote for us, pray for us, and we’ll take care of the rest.”
