McKinley Middle School just received a standing ovation during their ballad from not only the entire gymnasium but the entire judging panel was freaking out...I have never seen anything like it!
All I can say is it was an incredible performance. They deserved all the praise they got, because I STILL cannot believe that was a middle school show choir. They could've easily beaten varsity groups on Saturday. And yes, the judges were super freaking out hahaha.
Way to go LM! I'm glad to see you are doing so well! Good things happen to good people. I have been a huge fan of 10th Street especially after Great River 2011. This group will have a special place in my heart, congrats on the GC.
