Jack and Jim Sutton, owners of Sutton Brothers were raised in Forsyth County and have called Winston-Salem home for a very long time!
From an early age, their parents Big Jack and Betty instilled the importance of giving back to the community. Both Jack and Jim have been very active supporters of many organizations that help those in need.
When COVID-19 struck, they wanted to do something more to give back! The idea of a “support your favorite charity” campaign was chosen.
It is a fun, supporting event that promotes charitable causes in the area. Participants click to "vote" for their favorite A cappella group through the Sutton Brothers website to show their support for Atkins, Mount Tabor, & Reynolds High Schools. At the end of a 30-day voting period, a winner will be announced. First place will receive $1000, Second place $500, and Third place $250. You can vote daily from multiple devices, so remember to come back & visit.

Atkins High School
The Golden Girls are Atkins High School’s competitive, all female a cappella group. Founded in 2019 after splitting the previous co-ed group in two separate groups, this group of girls loves to spread a message of kindness and empowerment through their study and preparation of high-powered a cappella performances. Although virtual rehearsals have been a challenge for the group this year, the Golden Girls have used their passion for music and their love for each other as motivation to keep moving forward! We hope you enjoy their virtual presentation of Trampoline, originally performed by SHAED, featuring soloist Destiny Harris and vocal percussion by Simone Seymour.
Mount Tabor High School
The Spartanettes were formed in 2004 by a few Mount Tabor girls who wanted the opportunity to make even more music. Over the years they have performed for many events throughout the community. Since then, interest has increased greatly over the years and now it is a class. The students arrange many of the songs they perform (including Out of the Woods arr. by Kelsey Davis) and work hard in many roles taking on the leadership for the group. They direct, teach, and work together as a group to make sure they do their very best.
Reynolds High School
Founded in 2000, 2002, and 2008, RJ Reynolds High School has produced three talented A Cappella groups with students ranging from freshman to seniors. AcaFellas is an all-male group that started with five guys wanting to sing the Drifters version of White Christmas at the annual RJR Holiday Showcase. Today, it is made up of 11 men and is led by Connor Raposa and Paul Gunter. Syncopate is a treble group that was founded by eight driven girls, hence the name Syncop-eight. Today, the group has more than doubled in size since, and it is led by Anna Hudson and Isabella Ellis. X is RJR’s co-ed ensemble and is the newest of Reynolds' three main ensembles. Today it is led by Mckinnon Stewart and Joseph Davilla.
