With Special Guest Emcee, Shelby Ringdahl, 2013 Miss Missouri!
Andrew and Kristen Camp are The January Lanterns. They became The January Lanterns in October 2017 but they have been singing together for 14 years – since they were 15 years old (High School Sweethearts)!
Andrew and Kristen became involved with Voices of Columbia because, “We know and love Suzanne Guerrant, a CASA advocate, and love the mission of this organization. We want to raise as much money as possible to help children in need of love, support, and care.”
The January Lanterns will be performing “I Can’t Help Falling in Love with You” by Elvis Presley and “You Climbed Down” by The January Lanterns. “You Climbed Down” is about an advocate/loved one/friend who climbs down to someone’s lowest place to show them that they are not alone, they are understood, and that they are unconditionally loved through their pain. We felt that this song fit with the message of the CASA fundraiser and could bring hope to children in need.”
Founded in 2007, The Naturelles are Mizzou’s premiere all female a cappella on campus. They are the winners of the 2017 Midwest Regional Quarterfinals for the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella, and they had the honor of competing at the Midwest Regionals in Indiana against 10 other top a cappella teams around the Midwest. This particular group of women has been together since the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year, and they are excited to participate in Voices of Columbia because, “A member of our group suggested we sing at this event, and we love singing especially for a great cause.”
They will be singing: Bird Set Free/Dream On- Sia /Aerosmith (soloists Anna Yannessa and Brooke Fortner) and Something’s Got A Hold On Me by Etta James.
