Last Friday, the choir’s Chamber Singers entered the Macy’s All-School A Capella Challenge, an online competition coordinated with pop a capella sensation Pentatonix. For this national online competition, schools were challenged to submit their own original a capella rendition of The Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back,” create a video of their performance that was recorded on school grounds, and submit the video via YouTube. The Chamber Singers have been working since the beginning of the year on getting the best product available and spent two days recording it. CCI Choir Director Melissa Smith helped Mr. Stultz and I immensely by doing all of the filming and editing of the final video.


With all of the high quality entries from across the nation, it’s a long shot to win. Bu if we happen to win, we will win $25K for our school and program. We are very proud of the product we have created and think that we have a legitimate shot at being considered. There are some awfully good programs across the nation who have put out some very good videos (just go to YouTube and do a search for “Macy’s A Capella Challenge” to see the entries from all three categories: elementary/middle school, high school, and college. There will be three $25K awards given, one per category.), but we feel like our performance is right at the top with many others. Regardless of the final outcome, though, the students and directors had a blast putting this project together, and we will be using the video throughout the year for our own advertising and recruiting purposes.


Take a look at the video, and feel free to show any of your classes as well. As always, thanks for your continued support!

The freshman dark team defeated Brazoswood 49-21 Thursday in Brazoswood. The team scored touchdowns on 7 out of their 8 possessions, and the defense proved to be stalwart for the entire game. 5 different Wildcats reached the end zone, and the place kicker was perfect on extra point opportunities in a true team victory. The team would like to thank all of their dedicated fans for braving the trip and the mosquitoes to cheer them on towards a district title.
