Listen to the Our Own Thing Chorale's original arrangement of John Legend and Common's Glory featured below. This video was made possible by a "get out the vote" collaboration with the Ann Arbor Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta, Inc.
The Willis C.Patterson Our Own Thing Chorale (OOTC) is committed to the preservation and performance of traditional African American spirituals as well as contemporary choral compositions written and/or arranged by African American composers and musicians. The Chorale also works to raise funds for the Our Own Thing Instructional Program.
The Willis C. Patterson Our Own Thing Instructional Program provides free instruction in the arts, both vocal and instrumental, use of musical instruments, and scholarships to area youngsters who would otherwise be unable to afford the opportunity to study music.
