What Happened In Honor Of AGT’s Detroit Youth Choir?
As Detroit Youth Choir prepares to compete in tonight’s AGT Season 14 finals, a hometown landmark has gotten a makeover to honor them. The Spirit of Detroit, a bronze statue at the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center, is decked out in support of the singing group.
The monument is wearing a purple shirt and bow tie with the DYC logo on the chest. Purple is the choir’s signature color, and a local news station is asking fans to wear the color in support of the act. Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan has reportedly asked his staff to do the same.
The City Turns Purple For Detroit Youth Choir
TCF Bank reportedly sponsored the Spirit of Detroit makeover, with Prop Art Studio creating the oversize clothing. The statue has donned similar displays for Detroit sports teams over the years.
The Spirit of Detroit isn’t the only part of the city to go purple for the choir. Various places across Detroit were lit up in purple overnight. That includes the Blue Cross Blue Shield Building and Beacon Park.
Detroit Youth Choir Is In The ‘AGT’ Finals
Detroit Youth Choir, led by director Anthony White, received the Golden Buzzer from host Terry Crews in their audition. They have since made it through to the finals thanks to America’s votes.
DYC is one of three singing groups to compete in tonight’s finale — along with Ndlovu Youth Choir and Voices of Service. If any of these three acts win, it will be the first time a singing group has been crowned AGT champion.
They’re up against some stiff competition, including singer Kodi Lee and dance group V. Unbeatable. Will Detroit’s support be enough to carry them through to the million-dollar prize? Watch their performance tonight at 8/7c on NBC, and find out the winner on Wednesday’s results show.
