Lebanon High Schools show choir competed in finals February 28th at Mooresville High School. Charisma went and gave it their all and came back as grand champions for the first time in five years.

“My favorite part about being in charisma is how excited and motivated we are to not only win, but make ourselves proud. Our chant we have before going on stage warms my heart and makes me so proud to be in Charisma,” said senior Brynn Hensley

Charisma is the show choir at Lebanon High School, that is considered a class the first semester and becomes an after-school rehearsal by the second semester. They’re given a fifteen-minute set of songs to perform while dancing. Charisma then takes that show and competes against other show choirs at different high schools.

“It felt really nice to win grand champions! I don’t think any of us were expecting it. Wining Grand champs let us go into finals for the first time in five years,” said junior Olivia White

Charisma opened with “Can’t fight the moonlight”, followed by “Fly me to the Moondance” a combination of “Fly me to the moon” and “Moondance”. There ballad was “Sun and Moon” from the musical Miss Sagion, followed by “New Day”. Charisma closed with “Sun is never going down/ don’t let the sun go down on me”.

“I was one of the representatives getting the award on the stage and when I heard our names for grand champions, I was shocked, overjoyed, and extremely excited,” said senior Anneliese Wolfgang
