Kenny Rogers to perform with 2 Oklahoma youth choirs Friday at Hard Rock Tulsa show
TULSA – When legendary country entertainer Kenny Rogers brings his “Christmas & Hits Tour” to The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa on Friday night, he will be joined by two Oklahoma youth choirs during his holiday set list.
Members of the Cherokee National Youth Choir and the First Baptist Church Tulsa Children’s Choir will perform multiple songs during the holiday portion of the concert, according to a news release.
The Cherokee National Youth Choir has previously shared The Joint stage with Oklahoma native Vince Gill and The Oak Ridge Boys.
“This is a really neat way to start out the Christmas season,” said Mary Kay Henderson, director of the Cherokee National Youth Choir, in the release. “The kids are thrilled even though they didn’t really know who Kenny Rogers is, but their parents and grandparents are really excited.”
Henderson said the youth choir, which is comprised of seventh-graders to 12th-graders, has been preparing to sing along in English to “Chosen One,” “Joy to the World,” “O Holy Night” and “We Three Kings.”
The First Baptist Church Tulsa Children’s Choir consists of children ages 9 and 10 who come from schools within the Bixby, Jenks and Tulsa school districts. Friday’s concert marks the first time this group has performed at an event of this magnitude.
