Detroit Youth Choir presented with key to the city

It is the gold item that represents honor in Detroit.

Only few people have received a key to the city and now there’s a new recipient, actually 50 plus new members of this exclusive club.

You may remember Elliott from the many performances on NBC’s America’s Got Talent. He said being a part of the choir boosted his confidence.

“When I first joined, I was very shy, now I’m very outgoing and what not,” said Elliott.

Many believe DYC Director Anthony White has had a huge impact on the kids. “It is a great opportunity for our young people to actually experience this. I mean we’re in the likes of Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, and Big Sean. They get an individual key, that’s crazy. Big shout out to Mayor Duggan and the Detroit mayor’s staff, also City Council President Brenda Jones. We just want to thank everybody, WDIV, you guys have been with us through the whole journey,” said White.

“I feel very proud and ecstatic, just very blessed to get this key to the city,” said De’Andre Elliott II.
