COLUMBUS (WCMH) — In 2009, 100 people signed up to be a part of Harmony Project: a grassroots effort consisting of singers who also wanted to make a difference in Central Ohio.

It wasn’t just about their voices, it was about the passion to be part of something greater than themselves. One of the singers that signed up shortly after the beginning was Sheila Evans.

“I know we can only do so much but to get that message out to people I think it is a positive thing” said Sheila Evans, a tenor in Harmony Project.

The choir become so popular that it doubled, which then led to a wait list. That list became years long until last year when a second choir was formed.

This year, the two choirs have come together and Harmony Project now nearly 500 voices strong.
