The famed Boys Choir of Harlem, which for three decades gave kids
from New York City's poorest, toughest neighborhoods a chance to shape
new lives through music, has ceased
to exist. Beset by money problems, a sexual abuse case and a cover-up
scandal, alumni announced the choir's end at a Christmas concert at a
Harlem church.

"Tell the people - let it be known," said alumnus Terrance Wright. "There is no Boys and Girls Choir of Harlem."
