Garden Place Gals Sing Before Crowd at Gateway Grizzlies

At Garden Place Senior Living Columbia


April 25th, 2019


Garden Place Senior Living is very excited to announce that a group of our residents will be singing “God Bless America” before the opening pitch at the Gateway Grizzlies game on May 1st!


A group of Garden Place Columbia residents met routinely and decided they would like to form a choir.  They began meeting weekly and practicing their singing with hopes to get on the television show America’s Got Talent.  A Garden Place employee, Jessica Gorka, was browsing the Gateway Grizzlies website and noticed they were holding auditions for a choir to sing before a baseball game.  She asked the ladies if they would be interested and the Garden Place Gals was formed! 


The Gateway Grizzlies came to hear the ladies sing an audition and was happy to announce that they made the cut!  Now 14 Garden Place residents, The Garden Place Gals, are so excited to be performing before the opening pitch!  They will sing “God Bless America” on May 1st at 11:00 am.  We would love to see your support in the stands! 


An interesting note, most of our Garden Place Gals remember watching Kate Smith sing God Bless America on TV and are happy to sing a song that invokes positive memories from their childhood.
