RED OAK  – Red Oak High School senior Trent Moore was recently named to the Texas All-State Choir.

“Music means the world to me,” said the 18-year-old son of Tamelia and Augustus Moore.

Moore sings bass two and has been singing in the choir since he was a freshman. He began singing at the age of 6 and sings in his church choir at Mesquite Friendship Church.

Singing is a talent Moore got from his family. His mother sings and several other family members sing or play musical instruments.

During his spare time, he likes to sing and hang out with his friends.

Moore said he joined choir because of his love for music. He made all-region choir as a sophomore and will audition for a scholarship in March.

Music is in Moore’s future as he plans to attend college in Texas majoring in musical performance or musical education. He is leaning toward Stephen F. Austin University, Tarleton State University or Texas Tech University.

His choir instructor, Natalie Whitis, who is in her first year at Red Oak High School, speaks highly of her student’s dedication.

“Trent is an extremely hard worker. He came in every day for four months and rehearsed. That is commitment,” she said.
