Students Compete for a Good Cause at ‘Sing it to the Heights’
Ten talented Boston College students competed in the Sing It To The Heights Competition on Thursday, February 28th at BC’s Robsham Theater. The annual singing contest, organized by BC’s Emerging Leaders Program (ELP), is inspired by “American Idol” and was judged by a panel of three members of BC’s Jesuit community. Congratulations to the winner Tate Haynes who sang “River” by Leon Bridges.
Proceeds from tickets sales at the event are donated to the music program at Saint Columbkille Partnership School (STCPS). This year’s Sing It to the Heights raised approximately $4,140.
Two of the school’s choirs performed during the competition, showcasing the success of the music program. The STCPS junior choir performed “Fix My Eyes” by For King and Country. The select choir performed “Africa” by Toto.
This year, the Boston College Emcees, Kalie Paranzino and Peter Toronto were joined by STCPS’ own Danielle Lionel and Tatiyana Orrego-Dupree to introduce the contestants of the night!
Through a yearlong collaboration with Lynch School of Education and Human Development Associate Professor Deoksoon Kim, middle schoolers at Saint Columbkille Partnership School demonstrate their learning in social studies through sharing digital stories.
