Congrats to the Nova Singers of Nova Southeastern University, who have been selected to be the backup choir for Barry Manilow’s “One Last Time” concert Feb. 5 at the BB&T Center. Thirty-five of the 150-member Nova Singers will join Manilow in the finale of the concert when he sings his signature songs including I Write the Songs, Copacabana, Mandy and Looks Like We Made It. “We are all about keeping choral music alive and believe that every opportunity we have to perform is a group adventure in the art of music making,” said Chuck Stanley, Nova Singers artistic director. “We are honored to be on stage with such a legendary singer, songwriter and producer.”
