The room is dark until spotlights shine on two people on stage who share a few lines to introduce their group. Soon, voices start singing, and music begins. Bright colored costumes, perfectly synchronized choreography, and medleys of clever parodies to popular songs cross the stage and fill the room. The students continue in song and dance for several minutes with broad smiles across their faces. This energetic and fun experience is Step Sing, a campus tradition at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama.
