Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive

September 2, 2015

Last week our lovely ambassadors The Pacific Belles and Neighbours star Alan Fletcher took to the mic to promote Sing for Good on the Melbourne radio station JOY 94.9. The dynamic team sang the popular song ‘Accentuate the Positive’ giving the audience a taste of their delightful harmonies with support from the toe-tapping ukulele. The song was first written by Harold Arlen in 1944 and later performed by The Andrew Sisters and Bing Crosby. The song choice couldn’t be more fitting for Sing for Good with the key lyrics explaining ‘you got to accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative’.  Watch their radio performance below. 

“It’s important to reach out and connect with people and we feel so lucky to do this through our favourite pastime, which is singing”
Betty, Dot & Mabel (The Pacific Belles)
