Singers for Jessica’s Friends are sought to begin practicing as they prepare to open for the 32nd annual Cystic Fibrosis Concert featuring Joe Nichols. The concert will be held at 7 p.m. March 21 in the West Plains Civic Center.
Jessica’s Friends has been a significant part of the concert each year since it began, said event organizers. Children and teenagers of all ages are invited to take part. Organizers encourage any youth who has not taken part before and would like to participate to join this year.
Practices will be held at 2 p.m. Feb. 23, March 1 and March 15 at West Plains Elementary School and at 6 p.m. March 20 at the civic center. Children will sing under the direction of Diane Reed.
“They know how to start the evening off and sett the mood for Joe Nichols to take the stage,” said organizers, noting Jessica’s Friends is considered by many a highlight of the evening.
