In 100 years the choir has produced 175 albums, two platinum records and a Grammy. The talented members with golden voices have toured the nations of the earth and performed at presidential inaugurations, special events and other historic venues. The choir's radio broadcast of "Music and the Spoken Word" has been selected for induction into the National Radio Hall of Fame in November.
