About The Event

“Not a Black Thing ... Not a Thing ... It’s the Right Thing” Teen Choir Explosion was established in 1994 and continued for 10 years. In 2017, we reintroduced it to a whole new generation. The focus of the event still to unite teenagers in the metroplex and to offer a positive summer activity. We pooled resources from our local churches and businesses to benefit the entire community. This activity was fun and enlightening. After missing 2020 because of COVID-19, we are glad to be able to host Your Voice Unleashed for 2021.

The workshop will run:

Monday, June 21 through Friday, June 25, 2021.

We will have rehearsals Monday thru Friday nights from 6:00 to 9:00 P.M. and end with a grand concert on Saturday, June 26 at

7:00 P.M.

The participants will have exposure to different types of songs and styles of praise including Urban Gospel, Contemporary Christian and Latin Gospel taught by a diverse set of clinicians. Also included are workshops for dance and mime for those who don’t sing.

After each rehearsal there will be a time of fellowship where we will serve refreshments. Possible items include nachos, hot dogs, sandwiches, and pizza. We are soliciting donations to help defray the cost. This part of YVU allows people to meet others and develop new connections.

Participants can arrive at the rehearsal facility on Monday at 5:30 P.M. for pre-registration. The actual rehearsal begins nightly at 6:00 P.M. Groups rehearse from 6:30 -8:30 P.M. and then return to general assembly area for closing activities and announcements. The Workshop is dismissed at 9:00 P.M. to get refreshments. On Wednesday night, rehearsal time is shortening, and final general assembly time is extended to have time for an open panel discussion about race relations, cultural diversity, prejudice and how they can be overcome.
