Members of Mona Shores High School Choir have been uniting in Michigan for a song during the annual candlelight a cappella Mona Shores Singing Christmas Tree concert. They have been doing this for past 32 years. A team of 200 volunteers build a giant framework of steel which is 67 feet high. This framework can hold between 240 and 275 singers, and is decorated with 25,000 lights and 5,000 linear feet of greenery. This singing tree is a spectacle to behold.
