I am bursting at the seams with pride.
Glee (if you don't know what this is, you are living under a rock) is all the rage these days and bringing far more publicity to show choirs than I thought possible or necessary.
Glee also takes place at a fictional high school about thirty minutes from where I grew up.
Were our football players really singers and dancers? Oh yes.
Did we have pregnant members? Yes again.
Sassy gay friends? Double check.
Very passionate younger director? Yep.
Blue slushies? Not so much.
Black-listed? Eh...I thought the show choir kids were rather a group of more social elite at the school, but I could have a biased/warped perception.
A highly over-proportionate number of Asians? No offense to Middle America, but we lacked a lot of racial diversity.
Anyway, to the point.
Parade has compiled a list of the top 25 show choirs in the country.
Congratulations to my show choir - The Company from Piqua, Ohio! Watch them here. Vote for them here.
Oh - and let your freak flag fly:-)
