Greetings to you in Christ!
Music is the one unique gift that unites us all. It allows us to laugh, cry, rejoice, mourn, and heal together. We want to personally invite you, your choir, or members of your congregation who enjoy singing to share your precious gift of music with others on a very momentous occasion. On January 17, 2022, GRIDIRON UNIVERSITY will host our first MLK Day All-Star Classics. The event will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada and will highlight some of the best high school and college athletes our nation has to offer.
This event honors the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It aims to propel our youth and communities to continue the fight for equality for all Americans as well as stay on the course of pursuing their own individual dreams. As part of the festivities, we are planning a 10,000 voices Dream Choir consisting of soloists, groups, corals, choirs, and individuals citywide. We would be honored if you would join us.
There are no prerequisites of music reading or choral singing, just a voice to praise! The music will consist of songs many congregations and most individuals are already familiar with, “Lift Every Voice and Sing” and “We Shall Overcome.” We will also recite the Pledge of Allegiance. There will be no rehearsals. We only ask that all participants are familiar with the songs, register in advance, and arrive at the stadium at least one hour early. As a thank you, we will provide each participant with a free souvenir T-shirt to wear on the day of the game. And your church or group’s name will be listed under the Dream Choir Roll on our website.
Dr. King’s mission to pursue equality for all Americans was important, noble, and meaningful. There is no doubt why it was so easy for others to rally behind and support his dream, even if it cost them their lives. I hope you will find that the Dream Choir is a befitting way to honor his life and legacy. If so, please join us on January 17, 2022
