CLINTON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Clinton high school has kicked off its Spring Attache' Review to a sold out crowd. The popular choir group featured songs from the Beatles, and the Broadway hit, Rent. 

David Fehr, Clinton's director, was excited about the hype.

"This one is the fastest sellout in the history of Attache'. We were sold out last week," said Fehr. "We owe a lot to great music and we just try and teach that to the kids, how lucky we are to live in a world and country where we celebrate music and to have it in public schools." 

This is their first show since an undefeated season and hosting the Show Choir Nationals at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry. According to the National Show Choir Ranking System, they've also been ranked the #1 show choir in the nation for two years in a row. 

But for the members of the group, this choir is an opportunity for them to release stress, anxiety, and do it through a very unique way. 

Mattie Pierce, a second generation member of the choir, is in her 4th year with the group and is leaving on a high note. 

"Attache' is my outlet. I come in here and get to be myself, or whoever I want to be on stage," said Pierce. "Any frustration I have in my everyday life, I get to come in here and let it out as soon as I get on stage. I love it. We all experience this ride of emotions, and we feed off each other with that. We have a really strong bond." 

Attaché has also amassed one of the most impressive competition records of any other show choir in America. Since 1993, Attaché has won 77 Grand Championships, a feat not many has done before. 

A big factor as to why Clinton has one of the best choirs in the nation is because of their director, David Fehr. He has pushed the group to get better every year. 

"We have talented kids, but it's not about the talent that walks in the door, it's the talent that walks out," added Fehr. "Most kids have talent, all of them can sing and dance, but it's knowing what's between the ears, how to use that, that makes us talented."
