They commenced their participation in singing for church events way back in the days of our beloved parish priest Reverend Robert Raszkowski S.J. They sang mostly acapella and without amplifiers. However as time progressed they were accompanied with guitar and then with electronic keyboard. “The Church Choir” was their given name and they sang for masses, weddings, funerals, quinceaños, graduations, anniversaries, and for other special events. Individually they sang the national anthem for political rallies and conventions, but only individually. If Mr. Angel Nuñez has done 250 weddings and quinceaños, these ladies with lovely voices have done a similar number of performances. Some years ago close friends and relatives started calling them “The Alleluia Girls”. They were Marcia Nuñez+, Leonor Trejo, Leni Alamilla, Marthita Leslie and Vilma Arceo+. Even though two of them have sadly passed on, the group still continues strong with one new member joining the group; Mrs. Helen Haylock. Hats off to the Alleluia Girls!
