Oh Christmas Tree! Largest Singing Holiday Tree in U.S. Shines Bright in Michigan
It's a tree even Clark Griswold himself would envy. Getting a star on top may be tricky, but trust us, this tree shines pretty brightly on its own.
The Mona Shores High School Singing Christmas Tree is back again this year to brighten everyone's holiday season. Featuring over 200 high school choir students from Mona Shores High School in Muskegon singing atop a five-story tree, the tree is the largest singing Christmas Tree in the country. Filled with the sounds of the season and sparkling with over 25,000 lights, it is also the 4th largest singing tree in the world.
Each year a distinct honor is handed out for one choir member to be the tree's "angel". It was announced on Facebook that this year Senior choir member Ella Cole. In the post, the announcement describes Ella as,
"A real lover of musical theater. Her activities and engagement far and above the norm! Further, Ella lives with a condition known as Optic Nerve Atrophy, a condition for which there is currently no known cure or treatment. She lives courageously with it every day and is truly a hero with her attitude and her strength. Ella finds peace and happiness through music and especially in her singing."
The Mona Shores High School Choir will give life to the tree for a 37th year with four amazing performances at Muskegon's Frauenthal Center. Performances are set for November 30 as well as December 1, 2, and 3.
