Though it was a gray afternoon, the clouds didn’t chase away families and friends from joining the 2015 Plymouth Community Christmas Carol Sing-Along today in downtown Plymouth, Michigan at Kellogg Park.
Led by Dr. Jerry Smith, the music director at my church, First Presbyterian Church of Plymouth, I joined dozens of people for a late afternoon sing-along of of holiday carols in the almost forty-degree weather.
The park was filled with members of our congregation, families with young children in strollers, and older couples singing O Come All Ye Faithful, Here We Come A-Caroling, Go Tell It On The Mountain, and other Christmas carols along with the wonderful Salvation Army band.
I love sing-alongs and wish there were more throughout the year. It seems the only time families join together for sing-alongs is at church, school, or during the Christmas season.
Downtown Detroit has a community sing-along at Noel Night every year, led by the Salvation Army, but I haven’t heard of other community sing-alongs in the metro Detroit area.
Do you have a community sing-along in your town?
