Homecoming Float Singers Needed

If you're interested in singing on the choir department homecoming float, auditions will be Monday, September 26th during the second half of Enrichment in Mr. Ryan's office. Below are two links: one to the original recording of the song we'll be performing (we'll need a few people to rotate singing this during the parade) and one to the karaoke track that will back the singer(s) on the float during the parade. It does not need to be memorized for the audition on Monday!
