Minneapolis Choir Will Join Rolling Stones on Stage
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - When the Rolling Stones hit the stage in Minneapolis, one local choir will be singing backup in a performance members won't soon forget.
The legendary band brings its Zip Code Tour to the University of Minnesota's TCF Stadium Wednesday night. Twenty-four members of the Minneapolis-based VocalEssence choral group will join Mick Jagger and the rest of the band for a song.
VocalEssence artistic director Philip Brunelle says he got a call from a woman in Los Angeles about six weeks ago asking about the choir.
The group signed on and began its top secret rehearsals. Brunelle says he can't disclose the song they've practiced. But, if previous stops on the tour are any indication, it could be the classic number "You Can't Always Get What You Want."
