CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA)– A group of students is moving forward in a competition. No Comment is an all-gender a capella singing group at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. They entered “UpstagedAID: One World, Every Student Voice” National Collegiate Performing Arts(NCPA) A Cappella Championships.
Out of about 5000 groups, they are one of eight teams to make it to the semi-finals. They are competing for up to $10,000. They plan to share the money with a non-profit.
“If we were to win this, it would not only help us, it would help the Equal Justice Initiative which is a non-profit,” said Lexi Ippolito with No Comment, “It basically provides equal representation for people who have been wronged by today’s justice system.”
The last round of public voting ends Wednesday.
