Elijah Nichols, a 13-year-old choir singer from Monson-Sultana Elementary School in Dinuba, performed at Carnegie Hall in New York City on June 24. 

A choir singer since the 5th grade, Elijah has had no shortage of impressive performances. In February, he sang with his choir at the Mormon Tabernacle in Salt Lake City. Following that performance, his choir teacher nominated him for the Carnegie Hall honor. He was required to submit a recording of his singing to the prestigious organization and found out within six weeks that he was selected.

Jason Nichols, Elijah’s father, said the 8th grader spent every spare moment practicing for the occasion.

“We are so excited for him and so proud,” he said.
