Jordan Michels joined Heartland Men’s Chorus in September 2020.  

Why did you want to join?

I was in need of a place to escape and be able to just experience the joy of making music. I honestly didn’t know much about the choir beforehand, but I was warmly welcomed in. Even though the pandemic hit before I could join in person I was still able to join and experience a wonderful place to make meaningful music virtually. Through my computer screen, I felt such positive vibes that have helped me more than you know.

What song makes you happy?

‘Shake It Out’ (Glee version though) is so beautiful with all the different voices. Runner up, ‘I Give It All’ from the FOX TV Show “Star”. Gospel and I are barely acquainted, but this song is my new best friend. 

What are you looking forward to after the pandemic? 

Leaving my house and leaving my computer off to come to choir practice. Secondly, not wearing a mask. It’s the simple things for me. Haha.

Team HMCKC Remembers & Raises Money for AIDS Walk KC

HMCKC walked in the first AIDS Walk KC 33 years ago and since then we have raised tens of thousands of dollars for those in the Kansas City Area living with HIV.

Randy Hite is one HMCKC member who is walking to remember former members. “I’ll be walking with my team to remember those friends of mine that I’ve lost to AIDS. One of those friends was Robert Busby. He was in the chorus and he was a dancer and we were buddies and he would love to know that his name is on one of the memorial banners that the chorus will display during the walk. So, I walked to remember Robert and all my other friends.”

Team HMCKC is close to reaching its goal of $8,400 for the 2021 AIDS Walk KC. You can still donate to the Team’s fundraiser by June 30, 2021. Click here.
