MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Could the "C" in KFC soon stand for Choir instead of Chicken? Probably not...but KFC is doing a large part to help keep music alive. KFC's 10 Buck Sunday Bucket launch awarded 11 struggling choirs across the United States a $1,000 grant, combining the beloved weekend traditions of choir singing and family supper. A Montgomery Group, The Montgomery Chorale, was one of the lucky recipients.
Earlier this year, the chain issued an open letter to choral organizations across the country, asking them to describe how they could make beautiful music in a KFC near them. More than 140 choirs submitted nominations, and 11 choirs have been awarded $1,000 and the opportunity to sing at a local KFC.
Montgomery Chorale responded to the call, submitting a nomination that revealed a $1,000 grant would go a long way to help fund music and scholarships for children and adults.
