Alumni Spotlight: Making a Joyful Noise

Psalm 100, an a cappella group at UNC-Chapel Hill, has a unique mission to glorify the Lord and further His kingdom through their group. Psalm 100 was founded in 1999 based on the principles of the 100th Psalm which exhorts all the Earth to make a joyful noise to the Lord because He is steadfast and faithful. Psalm 100 works to remain true to its founding vision achieving musical excellence, worshiping together, praying for each other, and spending time in the music community at UNC. Psalm has a concert every semester to showcase the mix of Christian and secular music they have been working on, as well as “talkies” (short speeches that share the gospel and how the Lord has and is working in their lives). Psalm released an album over the summer of 2020 and is currently recording for their next album. At the end of every school year, they go on tour to different cities in North Carolina. This year, five Covenant Day alumni are in the group: Liz Yardley (‘17), Jackson Moseley (‘18), Grace Keel (‘19), Tim Yardley (‘21), and Charlie Moseley (‘21)! More information about the group can be found at their website: www.uncpsalm100.com.
