Choir Sings Super Bowl Hymns | News
There's a different kind of Super Bowl downtown, it's the Super Bowl of Hymn Festivals at the Mulberry United Methodist Church.
The Macon Chapter of the American Guild of Organists kicked off Super Bowl Sunday with a celebration of their own.
The Midtown Brass Quintet, from Atlanta, and Mercer University singers put on a musical show filled with church songs.
"The hymns are God's word to us through music and when people express that they have a better understanding of what that is," says conductor David Keith.
This ten year tradition is still going strong.
"It happened to be on the same Sunday as the Super Bowl. Some people thought it would be a disadvantage but it turned out to be an advantaged because we are usually done by four and the super bowl doesn't come on until the evening," says historian Harry Eskew.
