The Heritage Alliance Church Choir performs Sunday

When Grammy Award-winning singer Michael W. Smith performs in Abbotsford this Sunday, he will be accompanied by a 40-person choir from Abbotsford.

The Heritage Alliance Church Choir, under the direction of Randy Raine, will perform seven songs with Smith after receiving the most votes in a Facebook video contest.

The show, “A Very Special Christmas: The Symphony Tour,” takes place at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre, starting at 7 p.m.

Mary Kruk, a member of the Heritage Alliance Church Choir, said many in the group are big fans of Smith and are excited to be performing with him.

“We’re twittering – in the old-fashioned way,” she laughed.

The choir was formed in 1991, and usually consists of 25 to 30 people. Forty were required for the concert, and the additional spots were filled by church members who aren’t part of the regular choir.

The choir presents its annual production on Sunday, Dec. 9 at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. at Heritage Alliance Church (3440 Mt. Lehman Rd.). Tickets are $5 each or $20 per family and are available at the door.
