End Of A Song

Abby Zimet


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."

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
