Troy Elementary School students were in the limelight Wednesday night-“Limelight Montgomery,” that is.

As part of the Central Alabama talent competition that featured six finalists from the qualifying Limelight Troy event, and four Montgomery area acts, TES choir students performed in a special finale to end the night.

“The Music Industry Program is new in Troy and we want to spread community awareness,” said Limelight Director of Marketing Amy Latimer. “What better way to do that than involve future generations.”

Latimer and the Music Industry Program joined Troy University’s John M. Long School of Music in welcoming the TES choir to sing “Children of the World,” with Brandtely McDonald.

“We were happy to have been asked to join the program,” said Elaine Blocher, music teacher at TES. “Participating in this event was a wonderful opportunity for the students to interact with professionals from the music industry.”

Blocher said the 60 kids in the choir, mostly fifth-graders, had been practicing “Children of the World” for three weeks.
