Thanks to all who made our annual benefit such a great success!

At our Lakeside Singers’ 2016 Benefit, Michael Gibson’s Curie High School Musicality Singers performed with us to a standing ovation and thunderous applause! We had worked with Musicality for two years in our Kids On Track outreach program. Talent begets talent. This past year, Musicality was selected to audition for "America's Got Talent". They made it through the semi finals and gained millions of fans.

Musicality came to our 2016 Benefit and we recieved a wonderful note from their director:


Wow, what a wonderful evening we had! Thank you all so much for the amazing past few years. In my comments, I was truly being honest about Kids on Track and all of you. When we found out what this program entailed (the chance to record at CRC, singing with you all, etc) I knew we had to work hard to impress. This forced us all to really raise the bar! You were all an important part of our journey for the past two years, and we could not be more thankful. Congratulations on a successful event! We are lifelong fans of the Lakeside Singers, and you can expect to see us at your concerts!
