Nothing was going to stand in the way of Emma Fox and 2 1/2 days of a cappella singing.
When she fractured her pelvis in a car accident three weeks ago, the Beaver Creek, Ore., 16-year-old was determined to return for a second summer of Harmony Explosion.
The singing event in Parkland is an experience that lets youths ages 12 through 21 experience the joy of barbershop-style, doo-wop and other unaccompanied vocal music.
Once she found out her injuries didn’t require surgery, Fox said, her first thought was, “Why would I not go to Harmony Explosion? I’d choose Harmony Explosion over everything.”
She was propelled around campus in a wheelchair, with help from a friend, and had to sit in front of the risers onstage for rehearsals.
