Albany -- A group of young people use their voices Saturday night simply to give back.

The Young Adult Choir from The Saints of God House of Worship held a concert Saturday evening at Albany State University.

They put on this performance to not only give back to Southwest Georgia, but to also hopefully dispel negative stereotypes.

"All of us are young people that go to church together and are just giving back to the community. But by coming out tonight they see that young people are coming together.

We are not in the streets at all times of night, but we are here like I said to give back to the community," said Director, Makeba Wright Jackson.

This chorus from Leesburg has been singing for the past ten years. This is the second year the Young Adult Choir has held this concert.
