If you recall angelic voices singing a special arrangement of Nobel Laureate Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice" during Sunday's episode of "The Walking Dead," you were actually witnessing a group of talented choir students from Georgia State University's own School of Music.
Eight students from the Georgia State Choir were selected to perform for the show's second episode of its seventh season through a casting agent connected with the hit drama, Deanna Joseph, associate professor and director of choral activities at the GSU School of Music told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
"They were super excited and it's just such a great opportunity for them to make professional connections and work in the industry," Joseph said.
The arrangement itself was composed by Zayreton Slaton, another student in the school.
With Atlanta burgeoning into such a big television and film industry, Joseph said the choir often gets multiple calls for requests.
But with all the hoopla surrounding the hit series, this was no doubt a special one.
Listen to GSU School of Music students Taylor Conley, Jelani Watkins, Stephen Pepper, Julie Culotta, Madalyn Hardwick, Devon Higgins, Will Nichols and Erin Barksdale sing a special arrangement of Nobel Laureate Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice" composed by Zayreton Slaton:
