WHAT IS SING SONG?

What you never knew you needed
  1. A beloved tradition of Abilene Christian University
    Go 'cats!
  2. That began 60 years ago
  3. Groups perform ~3 minute acapella medleys of popular songs
  4. To which they change the lyrics to fit a theme
  5. There are 3 competitive divisions:
  6. Women's
    Each women's social club (AKA ACU's versions of sororities) generally competes
  7. Men's
    Each men's social club (ACU's version of a frat) usually compete if they have enough people
  8. Mixed
    These are generally compromised of each graduating class, but other mixed gender groups sometimes compete in this category as well. Due to the 100 participant max per act, the past 2 years there have been 2 freshmen acts to allow for more participation.
  9. Alumni are invited back to judge
    There's multiple judges, but it's obviously a v political process & im always enraged.
  10. There are also hosts & hostesses who perform in between the acts, but honestly who even cares?
    THIS IS ABOUT COMPETITION
  11. What are the key components of Sing Song?
  12. GLITTER✨✨✨
    From your costume to the giant set, 30% of surfaces in each act is covered in glitter & it never leaves you
  13. THE SING SONG FACE
    I have received awards for my sing song face. It's essentially this 🤗 but the main components are: eyebrows at your hairline, giant open smile, jazz hands, & acrylic paint on your face (idk who decided this but it feels just as bad as it sounds)
  14. RISER-OGRAPHY (aka ARM MOVEMENTS)
    Each club has a signature move that they do of this, alumni will scream bloody murder when they start (this is the Kojie pop through)
  15. BOWS 🎀
    If you are a lady you wear a bow, even if everyone in your act is a tooth, you gotta know where your lady teeth at
  16. MEN ARE PEOPLE/CHARACTERS
    Usually
  17. WOMEN ARE INANIMATE OBJECTS/ANIMALS
    Usually. This is very problematic, while I love ACU, we behind on gender roles & all that fun stuff.
  18. okay, here are some links to some of my favorite acts in case you are interested
  19. Trojans 2013
  20. Alpha Kai Omega 2012
  21. Galaxy 2008
    https://youtu.be/Mm1r5aG3xFU (the funny story behind this act is Galaxy was in a seven year losing streak to GSP so they name their act 'I think we can, I think we can, but then again I thought we could for the last seven years') P.S THEY WON
  22. Seniors 2015
