Congressman Chuck Fleischmann spoke on the House floor in honor of the Voices of Lee, an A capella group from Lee University in Cleveland.
“I rise today in recognition of the Voices of Lee for their outstanding performance and representation of Lee University. Lee University is located in my current district within Bradley County and presently has a little over 4,400 students enrolled in their undergraduate program.
“Under the direction of Mr. Danny Murray, Voices of Lee has grown into a nationally recognized singing group, having released seven music albums and several DVD’s since their debut in September of 1994. The group performs a capella around the country, and their current schedule includes locations in North Carolina, Indiana, and Florida, many other states.
“The energy and feeling placed into each and every song is a talent that deserves praise, and this talent is not easily learned. I believe that anyone who listens to them cannot hear the music without being moved. Each student who receives the opportunity and honor of participating in the Voices of Lee is put through grueling training and given demanding work. However, the results of their labor are not in vain, and I am pleased to take this opportunity to commend them for such dedication.
“I Yield Back.”
