Gospel Choir

In high-school I  was a part of an amazing choir called the Touch of Class Choir of Philip and Sala Burton.  For four years we traveled, ate well, sang and danced our hearts out to jazz, classical, gospel, r&b and contemporary music.  To this day, I get nostalgic just thinking of all the amazing times we had together. 

 A trip down memory lane...
Can you spot me? (glasses and bangs) Performing at church in high school--even though I am not all religious.  The food afterwards was aahhhmazing

Our choir director made it a priority that as young people, we traveled!  Here we are in Shanghai, China.  A small group of us from the choir were selected to go and perform on an all expense paid trip by San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown to sing in China for an event to bridge the gap between the two sister cities, San Francisco and Shanghai. We sang on the Royal Caribbean cruise ship and vacationed in Florida and the Bahamas and even sang for President Bill Clinton, Hilary Clinton and Governor Gray Davis!

So I was super excited to find out that the The Hamilton Hotel in D.C was hosting a gospel brunch with the Howard University Gospel Choir!

Breakfast Buffet and good music? Yes please!

Waffle station!  Is anything better on sunday than freshly made fluffy waffles????

A sold out house!

 Fried chicken, biscuits and gravy, shrimp and grits, smoked salmon
Mac n cheese, bacon, gumbo, some egg and sausage in there..some
 I love it when fruit tastes like fruit..sweet, ripe, juicy, delicious

Omelet Station!!
Glazed ham! YESSS! YES!

Complimentary mimosas and bloody marys--I tried not to drink so much since we had dragon boat rowing practice later...Too much food + alcohol before going out on the water = disaster

The Howard Gospel Choir!


I need to find me a choir to join..!.
