Leaving Davidson means leaving chorus director Keitha Bledsoe, who helped Catherine find her voice, the teen said.

The student was proud of the chorus’ philanthropy. 

 "It makes us happy that our last performance is helping people out that don't have clean water," she said.

Catherine’s mother, Joy Stewart, appreciated the message the concert provided.

  "I think it’s good for the kids to know ... how underprivileged other people are compared to the privileges they have," she said. "It's great that they did this to help other people."

Crestview dentist Dr. Jennifer Wayer was at the concert representing World Vision. Wayer, who has spoken to students about World Vision's Swaziland outreach, said the performances touched her.

"It is absolutely humbling to see," she said. "These students have worked so hard all year long; they sang from the depths of their hearts ... it was beautiful."
