Choir’s carols strike the perfect chord for banking customers

An a cappella choir of veterans — who also will appear with Wells Fargo at the 2016 Rose Parade on New Year’s Day — surprised customers and team members at Los Angles banking stores with songs and roses.

“We just want to lift spirits and leave the audience with something they hadn’t expected.”

That’s how singer Carleton Lewis Griffin of the New Directions Veterans Choir described the impromptu caroling the choir did at several Wells Fargo banking stores in Los Angeles.

The choir serenaded customers and handed out roses in Reseda, Panorama City, and Studio City.

The choir is an award-winning a cappella group whose male members are military veterans whose struggles following their service left them homeless.

The choir also will participate — with the help of Wells Fargo — in the closing ceremonies of the 2016 Rose Parade.

Choir founder George Hill concluded, “We’re really happy to be caroling today, and we can’t wait to get to the parade.”
