Ala. singer looks to emulate teacher's mentorship
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama native who has been nationally recognized for his vocal talent says a teacher at a Montgomery high school was his inspiration.
J. Warren Mitchell, an Auburn University alumnus who went on to study choral directing at Oklahoma City University, has been admitted to the professional studies program at the Manhattan School of Music in New York City. Mitchell says he wants to emulate the mentorship he received from Henry Terry, choral director at George Washington Carver High School.
Mitchell began singing at church as a child, competed in all-state singing contests in high school and has performed at Carnegie Hall. Terry tells the Montgomery Advertiser (http://on.mgmadv.com/ZIy0Bj) he's proud to see one of his former pupils excelling.
