Happy Birthday, Sweet Adelines!

On this day in 1945, Edna Mae Anderson gathered fellow singers in Tulsa, Oklahoma to create a space for women in barbershop. From a first chapter of 85 women now at 21,000 singers worldwide, 75 year is something to celebrate!

The anniversary is celebrated each year as Barbershop Appreciation Day and Sweet Adelines invites you to share your memories and experiences using the hashtag #sweetads75 from now through October when they had been due to celebrate at their international convention.

Happy birthday!
