We make music,” she said. “We bring forth our own personal stories and relay it to our audience members in a way that speaks to us, and hopefully in a way, that speaks to the audience members as well.”The singing groups practice between four and eight hours a week.Each a cappella group will hold three concerts this school year, but have been asked to perform for other organizations and at events.In addition to performances, License to Trill will be hosting a 5K neon glow walk on January 28 with seven other Texas a cappella groups. The walk will end with an a cappella concert in the BLUU ballroom. All proceeds will go to LUNGevity Foundation, the nation’s leading lung cancer-focused nonprofit.“It’s going to be aca-awesome,” Higgins said. + posts Linkedin TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history ReddIt Previous articleMcLeland Tennis Center kicks off celebration with a serveNext articleFort Worth Zoo raises $90 million for new exhibits Colleen Mortell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook ReddIt Colleen Mortellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colleen-mortell/ TAGSphotos Student crowned Miss Wisconsin Teen USA Election Day is Tuesdaylast_img read more
