Close to 20 students take part each semester in the Little Lights Choir, led by our Associate Director, Linda Rice, as well as Crystal Jenkins, who grew up attending Little Lights and participating in Choir.

Every Friday afternoon they practice together, preparing for the multiple performances they do across the city. Using contemporary gospel music, they add in various motions and clapping to keep things lively and get audiences excited.

Their performance is an annual favorite at the Little Lights Benefit, plus they perform at many of our partner churches, for various events, and at the Gathering’s Christmas party.

Being part of the Little Lights Choir gives students the chance to travel around the city and meet all types of people, plus they also learn teamwork, coordination, and how to express themselves creatively.
