After multiple rounds of auditions and callbacks, Student Productions has selected hosts and hostesses for Sing Song 2017.
The hosts and hostesses are:
Teonna Murphy, junior vocal performance major from Houston.
Courtney Eubank, junior vocal performance major from Phoenix, AZ.
Shelby Werderich, junior marketing major from Spring.
Ross Spears, junior psychology major from Abilene.
Christian Fugar, senior kinesiology major from Cypress.
David Martinez, senior kinesiology major from Clear Lake.
Tom Craig, director of student organizations and productions, said the group made the final cut because of their vocal talent and synergy as an ensemble.
“As individuals and as a group they sound amazing and have great personality on stage. The audience will love them,” Craig said.
Craig said the cast will take the audience through a series of emotions that will bring to life this year’s Sing Song theme, Fire and Ice.
Martinez said he has wanted to be a Sing Song host since his freshman year.
“I remember watching a friend, who was a senior hostess at the time perform on the downstage,” Martinez said. “Watching her perform and seeing how joyful the experience made her, I said to myself “I need to do this.” I knew I was going to audition the first chance I got, and thankfully it worked out.”
Murphy said she did not suffer from jitters after her hostess audition because she left everything she had to give on the stage.
“I was very comfortable on stage because at that point it didn’t matter what the results were,” Murphy said “I knew that I went on stage and gave it my best and had a lot of fun.”
Murphy also said she is thankful for the opportunity to perform as a hostess and encourages others to audition in the future if they feel led to do so.
“When God has something for you, you just have to be confident and go for it,” Murphy said. “Pray about it a lot, too, I’ve prayed throughout my journey and I feel like without my relationship with God it wouldn’t have happened.”
Sing Song 2017 will take place Feb. 17-18, for more information visit http://www.acu.edu/legacy/events/singsong/index.html.
