Youth Choir Sets Sights on World Tour

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): A local youth choir is hoping to pull off a world tour… with your help.

The Voices of Unity Youth Choir kicked off their community fund drive yesterday, getting donations of $50,000 from Sweetwater and $100,000 from the Ash Family Foundation. The choir wants to perform in a number of international festivals next year, including a concert in Vatican City, although director Marshall White tells the Journal Gazette he's not sure if Pope Francis will attend. 

They're hoping to raise a million dollars, which is more than twice what the tour will cost… White says the extra cash is to help the program expand. You can donate at this link.
