The first-ever National Choir Appreciation Sunday, a day for churches across America to celebrate their choirs, will take place on Jan. 8, 2012, according to Grace Hill Media. There are more than 32.5 million choir members in churches around the nation, who collectively volunteer 8.5 billion hours every year. "We envision Jan. 8, 2012, as a day designated for churches nationwide to thank their choirs -- volunteers of time and inspiration -- for the joyful noise they provide week in and week out all year long," said Kathy Fernandes, vice president of marketing for sheet-music retailer J.W. Pepper, one of the event's sponsors. Other sponsors of the event are CCLI and Sermonspice.com; country music legend Dolly Parton and actress Queen Latifah are serving as spokespersons.
