STJ Show Choir shows their love

Vocal Motion Show Choir will be putting on their second performance this Friday in the Little Theater.

“Songs for the Heart” is a charity event that will be comprised entirely of love songs in honor of Valentine’s Day and the organization’s chosen charity, the American Heart Association.

February, in addition to being the month of Valentine’s Day, is also National Heart Month, which helped Vocal Motion to guide their song selection.

“The theme of songs for the heart becomes twofold, then,” said Justine Woods, the president and the founder of the organization.  “Not only are they songs for the heart in the sense of love being a heartwarming emotion, but the proceeds all go to heart health via the American Heart association.”

Woods, a senior, said that there will be two full cast numbers, as well as solo, duet and small group performances. Songs will range from Broadway numbers to pop and even an original song by one of the group’s members.
