Detroit Youth Choir Returns To America’s Got Talent Tonight
We all remember the Detroit Youth Choir who was a part of an earlier episode in this season of America's Got Talent. The performance really struck a chord with Western Michigan University Alumni, Actor, and host Terry Crews, which prompted him to give the choir an automatic finals entry by pressing the "Golden Button." The Detroit Youth Choir is performing on the live quarter-finals of "America's Got Talent" tonight at 8 p.m.
Anthony T. White, the team's choir director, spoke to Local 4 about the strength of their team, "The Detroit Youth choir is a community-based choir. We have a lot of inner-city kids. Some of them have bad home situations or they can be in the streets, there's violence. We give them something positive to come and be a part of. We can take that little bit of talent and pour some water on it and grow it."
Detroit Youth Choir members range in ages 8 to 18 years old and practice four nights a week, from four to five hours at a time. Voting for the team goes until 7 a.m. Wednesday and can be voted for on the America's Got Talent App or at NBC.com.
