Gleeful - really!

Self confessed "Gleek" Anthony Callea must be pleased with the thought that a Iowa High School Show Choir has chosen to perform one of his songs during their 2011 - 2012 season.

Anthony's beautiful "Per Sempre"  has been picked by the West Branch choir as their selected Ballad component for the two-month competition season.

West Branch will perform a set of five songs selected to demonstrate the team’s wide-ranging talent:

• Skillet’s “Hero” (hard rock)

• E-Type’s “Eurofighter” (techno)

• Anthony Callea’s “Per Sempre” (ballad)

• Marc Anthony’s “I’ve Got You” (Latin salsa)

• Bon Jovi’s “Have A Nice Day” (rock)

As anyone familiar with the Television series Glee is aware, these competitons are a very big deal, involving months of training for the singers, dancers and musicians involved.

I am so excited to learn that Anthony's most beautiful ballad " Per Sempre " has been chosen by the West Branch of Iowa High School for their competition. I wish them the very best of luck with this most beautiful song and I'm sure Anthony is very pleased and proud they have selected his amazing song. I have loved this beautiful song since the very first time I heard Anthony sing it. Anthony has always loved Glee and calls himself a " Gleek"

They certainly picked a beautiful ballad. I wonder how they came to hear it.

Good luck to the Choir!
