Christmas shows raise funds for local causes – Mentions David Archuleta

15 January 2010



David Archuleta’s name just keeps popping up all over the news these days. His effect is global: with his presence in Central America helping and inspiring young business entrepreneurs or his heartfelt suggestion to aid those in desperate need in the wake of the Haiti earthquake.

Many Christmas shows have been inspired by David Archuleta. Many of the songs he has sung on his Christmas Tour have been implemented into many of their repertoire.

SHIRLEY — The Shirley Touring Children’s Christmas Choir recently presented two concerts to raise funds for local non-profit organizations.

On the evening of Saturday, Dec. 19 at the Shirley Middle School, students Alexis Blackwell, Dylan Bourassa, Nasia Bykov, Kenna DeLong, Jillian Deshler, Hannah Doiron, Brooke Farley, Brianna Finnegan, Sydney Greeno, Jocelyn Hart, Michaela Hoffmann, Rebecca King, Riley Korhonen, Sydney Korhonen, Jeanne McCarron, Isabella Oliviera, Anna Pedreschi, Ashlyn Prehl, Raiven Quirk, and Hannah Wilkerson sang with the Shirley Community Adult Choir.

Members of the adult choir were: Ralph Bridges Gail Dolan, Marie Elwyn, Donna Ferriera, Lela Male, Ruth Maxant, Cindy McCarthy, Polly McGrath, Chris Olson, Emily Olson, John Rounds, Adele Sullivan, Lauren Sullivan and Wendy Welton.

The singing group “A Goodlie Companye”, featuring members Cheryl Hayden, Sheila Hunter, Bob Jacobs, Ann Jakiela, Dave Samanen, Diane Seiler, Larry Seiler and Div Slomin, joined them in the performance.

The event raised $725 for Loaves and Fishes, which feeds 400 families each week, and provides emergency shelter, resource referrals, and other temporary services for its clients.

Songs sung by the children’s choir included “Jingle Bell Hop” and “Reindeer Boogie.” The adult choir’s repertoire included “Riu, Riu, Chiu,” or “Nightingale’s Sounds,” a Spanish composition written [sic] by David Archuleta.

I am sure they meant Melodies of Christmas.

Selections sung by A Goodlie Companye, with help from the children’s choir, included the French Christmas carol “Pat-a-Pan,” and the Christmas spiritual “Have You Heard the Story?”
