"Sing For Your Supper" CD a beautiful reminder of the meaning of Christmas

Christmas songs like "Silent Night" and "Grown Up Christmas List" are beloved reminders of the reason for the season. Now, Agape Community Center has compiled 18 of these meaningful carols on its 2012 "Sing For Your Supper" Christmas album.

All proceeds from the sale of the CD directly benefit the hungry poor in Milwaukee.

It's the sixth year that Agape has released a Christmas CD, with all proceeds donated to its Agape Community Meal Program. The program serves more than 17,000 meals every year to the hungry with the assistance of over 850 volunteers from local groups, churches and corporations.

This year's "Sing For Your Supper" CD features local celebs like Sarah Fierek of 88.9 Radio Milwaukee and Leigh McNabb of 103.7 FM, as well as the vocal talents of these area schools and churches:

  • St. Robert's Middle School Choir
  • Marquette University High School Choir
  • St. John Vianney & St. Dominic String Orchestra
  • Dominican High School Concert & Chamber Choirs
  • Divine Savior Holy Angels High School Choir
  • Greater Galilee Baptist Choir & Calvary Baptist Choir
  • St. Thomas More High School
  • Catholic Memorial High School

A few of my personal favorite tracks: "What Child is This," performed by the angelic voices of the children of St. Robert's; "O Come O Come, Emmanuel" performed by Amy Stanelle and Lucy Hagen; and "Boyce Alleluia" performed by Catholic Memorial High School Chorale.

The CD is $15 and can be purchased at Agape Community Center, 6100 N. 42nd St., or by calling (414) 464-4440.
