Sing Song this spring will be busy with six fresh hosts and hostesses, a full show of 17 acts and many new directors.
This year has the potential to set many records. Gamma Sigma Phi is looking for their fifth win in a row and Alpha Kai Omega looks for a second victory since their charter in 2000. The senior class is also preparing for a class sweep, a feat rarely accomplished.
Carly Branscum, senior Ad/PR major from Fort Worth, is a downstage co-chair for the second year. She understands the pressure on the senior class because the last time a class has swept all four years was the class of ’98.
“There is a lot of tradition coming into this year, with GSP and our senior class this year, and Alpha Kai Omega won for the first time last year, can they do it again?” Branscum said. “I think it is going to be a great show. I mean, yeah it will be nuts and all, but with the help of five co-chairs instead of only three last year, it will be a good year for Sing Song.”
Hunter Clinton, senior social work major from Keller, said he is honored to direct this year’s GSP act.
“I have been around GSP and Sing Song all my life and worshiped the ground they have sang on,” Clinton said. “Now I have the honor of leading them to another victory. We have had some really good acts the last few years and I plan on this one topping them all.”
