Singing Lions To Perform Love for Lexi Cabaret on Friday

Penn State’s very own Singing Lions show choir has a mission to spread Penn State cheer on and off campus through all sorts of performances, and its most popular event is just around the corner. The Singing Lions’ annual Love for Lexi cabaret is this Friday, Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. in 102 Forum.

The cabaret is in honor of the team’s Four Diamonds child, Alexia Barnett. Lexi sadly passed away in 2011, and the event each year commemorates her life. Since the Singing Lions’ pairing with the Barnetts, they’ve supported the family during Lexi’s illness and passing.

“We love that committees and organizations can come to hear Lexi’s story,” said Vice President and current THON Communications Captain Kris Canner. “We’re especially excited that the Barnett family can join us for this special event.”

This year’s set list includes Disney mash-ups, pop musical numbers, and songs by well-known artists like Sara Bareilles, Colbie Caillat, and Elton John.

Committees, student organizations, and any other THON supporters are encouraged to come out. Admissions are available at the door: $3 for students and $5 for adults. All proceeds will go directly to the Love For Lexi Foundation, and donations toward THON will be accepted the night of the cabaret.
