Rock stars, bridesmaids and ice cream vendors win Sing Song 2003

For immediate release
Feb. 24, 2003

Elvis and the Beatles, bridesmaids who turned into brides, and ice cream delivery workers won the overall awards for Sing Song 2003 at Abilene Christian University, announced at the final performance Saturday night.

In the men's social club division, the men of Gamma Sigma Phi won first place for their show portraying classic rock stars; in the women's social club division, the women of Sigma Theta Chi won first place as bridesmaids; and in the mixed category (classes) the freshman class won as ice cream delivery workers.

The clubs and classes are judged on originality (at the Friday night performance), presentation (Saturday afternoon performance) and vocals (Saturday night performance). The scores are then tallied to determine overall winners, which are announced at the final performance.

Now in its 45th year, Sing Song began in 1957 as a contest between quartets who stood on stage and sang and has evolved into a competition of choreographed, costumed crowd-pleasers. Today, 10-15 clubs and classes compete in Sing Song every year and hosts and hostesses entertain the audience with musical numbers between each competitive act.

This annual event now involves almost 2,000 students and faculty and includes seven hosts and hostesses. This year's show focused on the theme "Infinite Joy" and featured groups dressed as characters ranging from 1950s housewives and golfers to kids in a candy store and Uncle Sam.
