The D.C. WAIT Team is starting our year off with a performance at the House of Jesus church in Silver Spring, MD.

On February 1, 2015, nine members of the D.C. team plus one junior member answered a longstanding request from the church's youth leaders to give a follow-up performance to one delivered five years ago. It was a powerful experience for both performers and audience members. We were impressed by the energy, enthusiasm, and intelligence that the youth exhibited, and were sorry not to have more time to interact with them after the performance.

We also debuted a new act at this performance: the song "Try," originally written by Colbie Caillat and rewritten/arranged by members of the D.C. WAIT Team. The act is still in its rough stages, but we hope to eventually incorporate it into the official WAIT repertoire.

Over all, this was a motivating experience that has given us bright hopes and energy to face the oncoming year with.
