Prepairing  a Group

Find four eager children who can sing well and are happy to sing gospel music. Provide them copies of the words and the musical (being sung) so thaey can practice at home. It only takes a 4-5 practices to get them ready (get the backing music). While you are at it, work out a couple of simple dance routines (doesn't need a lot) at appropriate places and get a few pictures together to show on a television or projector as well.

Organise places to present it then go and enjoy!
