Name: Fa Sol La Singers
Location: Atlanta, Georgia
Biography Synopsis: An Atlanta, Georgia group directed by J.J. Davis. The group takes its name from the unique practice, at least on record, of singing a song’s opening verse and chorus using note names instead of lyrics. As the song progresses, the words are introduced. The style is probably derived from the tradition of shape note singing. The group was a small mixed choir, but nothing is known about the group’s origin or personnel.
