It's beginning to sound a lot like Christmas especially tomorrow
Tomorrow, the sounds of the season will be sung loud and proud by the
American Boychoir and the Princeton University Chapel Choir in a holiday
television special that will air on Fox 5-WNYW at 10:30 p.m. The special
will be repeated 10:30 p.m. Dec. 20 on My 9-WWOR.
The Princeton choirs will sing in part to promote their CD, "A Princeton
Christmas: For the Children of Africa, Vol. 2," which raises money to
help support the United Nations World Food Program school meal initiative
More than 450 students from 11 choirs in Princeton sing on the CD.
Last year's effort raised $41,666 and provided more than 160,000 meals
for African school children, said Tom Meagher, the organizer of "A Princeton
Another Princeton choir the Tartantones of Stuart Country Day
School will sing on "The CBS Early Show" Dec. 20.
Lauren Bush, the niece of President Bush, will also appear on the special
tomorrow night and speak on behalf of the World Food Program, which
provides healthy meals to children in some of the world's poorest countries.
The 18-track music compilation features holiday songs from the American
Boychoir, the Princeton Day School Madrigal Singers, the Princeton Girlchoir,
the Princeton High School Choir, the Princeton High School Cloud Nine,
