A group of 10 students from Covenant Academy have been selected to be part of the annual downtown Nashville Christmas parade this Saturday, Dec. 7.

The purpose of Nashville’s “Sing’n on the Musical Mile” is to bring together singers from around the region to join a unique cast of performers. The parade benefits the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.

Covenant’s choir has been practicing for several months to learn the music and choreography for the parade. The choir director is Pam Gross of Covenant Academy. 

“I’m excited to see the practice and hard work these students have put into the performance pay off,” says Gross. “It’s also for a great cause, which makes the experience even more special.”

The parade will begin at 8:30 a.m. and will be aired live, as well as recorded for national TV syndication. Covenant Academy’s choir will be featured at 10:09 a.m. and will be performing the song “Sing!”

“I’m looking forward to being able to be a part of something special with everyone in the choir,” says member Erica Clay. “I’m excited to have fun, smile and enjoy the moment since this is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
