Vocal trio 1aChord performed live for the first time since their run on America’s Got Talent on UNC Greensboro’s campus as part of a dining event on Friday, Sept. 24.

Spartan Dining hosted America’s largest college street food festival, “Festi-ful,” the first signature event from Chartwells’ Joy-Ful program, which is a year-long campaign aimed at welcoming students back to campus in a memorable way.

The event featured several food vendors, a photo booth, a magician, an Instagram livestream with celebrity chef Jet Tila, and more.

1aChord headlined the event, bringing their gospel sound back to where it all started – Fountain View Dining Hall.

The trio – comprised of music theatre major Tavis Cunningham, jazz studies major Julian Kennedy, and music major Christoff Hairston – performed a set of four songs and was met with endless cheering and applause from their fellow Spartans. After their performance, they held a meet and greet with students and signed autographs.
