    It's the busy Christmas season, but there is a group of 30 singers who are already rehearsing for a big event in January. The biennial charity concert, "Will Sing for Food" is a combination of songs with talented, experienced singers and musicians with an altruistic side- all proceeds will help fund The Long Island Council of Churches food pantries. This year, there is a special fund for Hurricane Sandy victims.
     Andy Morreale, one of the directors said, "Our performers consists of high schoolers, adults and college students who are home for the holidays. We have a fun- filled night planned which will even involve audience participation. Our program is filled with a variety of songs from different genres from folk to rock, bluegrass to pop. Our opening number is a song called 'Care' by Kid Rock."
