Sweet Adelines earn sweet award

Posted: Updated:
You may have heard of the worldwide organization, "Sweet Adelines International."

 It's a group of women who sing in a form of barbershop harmony. 

One group, a quartet from right here in Southeast Texas, is called "5 O'clock Somewhere!"
 
Carolyn, Pam, Sheri and Kerri are the Sweet Adelines who are putting on a show that brings you more than just a voice.

"We have to animate ourselves. We have to sometimes do choreography moves and those can take away from the sound of the song. But, we have to line up four notes exactly right in barbershop style and that creates what we call overtones," said Pam Perish.

These women have performed together for six years; practicing year-round for competition.

Last year, for the first time, the quartet brought home the grand prize from the regional competition.

"It was very emotional. I cried for hours," said Perish.

"When we won, Pam was like this crying (head in her hands), and I had my hands on her shoulders smiling. This year, we still had a pretty good reaction like 'Oh my gosh! We did it," said Carolyn Hudler.

It was back to back victories from four women who say they are more like sisters.

Their friendship and journey through their career is kept in a scrap book.

They're making lifetime memories; success stories that will be told for years to come.

5 O'clock Somewhere! will be performing at the International competition in Baltimore, Maryland in November.
