“Since 2006, I’ve been facilitating transformational coaching and teaching voice by helping clients turn off their judging ears and relax into the untapped power in their voice through cutting edge vocal techniques,” said Julie Blake, founder of Rock It Choir. “Realizing how overcoming the fear of singing made such an impact on clients was the motivation to start Rock It Choir to reach the masses to help them develop the confidence and courage to go for it! Flash Mob is the perfect platform that paves the way to make this happen.”
Members of the camp will also have the option to participate in the city’s first official 300-member rock choir concert slated for early 2019, which is currently in the planning stage. Several rock concerts will be scheduled throughout the new year, with proceeds from ticket sales to benefit local music non-profits and fund Rock It Choir’s recruiting efforts to hire local musicians and creatives.
