Hire Gucci Mane to Perform with Ole Choir at Christmasfest

This petition had 52 supporters

Christmasfest has a long and proud history of bringing current students and numerous generations of Ole together to celebrate the holiday season, the wonderful talent of the St. Olaf music department, and what it means to be an Ole. Started in 1912 and broadcast throughout the country, nothing shows the world what we Oles truly love about St. Olaf like Christmasfest does.

With such a wide audience and rich history, aided by the extraordinary talent of the St. Olaf music instructors, choir, and orchestra, what better way to show that Oles recognize the immense cultural impact Gucci Mane has had on our society than by having the St. Olaf choir perform "Classical Intro," the opener of his monumental album "The State vs. Radric Davis," at Christmasfest 2016?

We hope that the St. Olaf Choir will hire Gucci Mane to perform his verses over the accompaniment of the Ole Choir, reflecting the true breakdown of the song and allowing Gucci to deliver his intended message. We do not condone the co-opting of black music by white choirs for comedic purposes, we hope to have the man himself perform with the choir's help.

Give the song a listen, experience the genius of Radric Davis, and sign this petition if you understand the perfect opportunity we have been given to honor the impact of Gucci Mane. Thank you.
