In a tweet Wednesday night, Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan says: "America has seen the true Spirit of Detroit through this group of amazingly talented young people and their inspiring director, Anthony White."
Wednesday morning post:
The Detroit Youth Choir won't know until Wednesday night whether it will advance to the "America's Got Talent" finals — but the kids' celebrity status back home is already certain.
According to the Freep:
On Tuesday, the Parade Company announced that the Detroit Youth Choir would be the opening act for the 93rd America’s Thanksgiving Parade on Nov. 28 in Detroit. The choral group also will perform at the annual Hob Nobble Gobble fundraiser on Nov. 22.
This comes after last week's reveal that the choir will be the halftime act for Sunday's Detroit Lions home opener at Ford Field.
The group performed an inspiring rendition of Panic at the Disco's "High Hopes" Tuesday night as it competed against 10 other acts for one of five spots at the Sept. 17 final.
