They may not have won America’s Got Talent last year, but that sure hasn’t stopped the Sons of Serendip.
The vocal quartet, led by Stonehill alum Micah Christian ’06, performed alongside the Boston Pops at the orchestra’s annual Firework Spectacular July 4.
The group performed an orchestral version of “I Lived,” a single featured on OneRepublic’s most recent album. The band’s performance, which took place on the Esplanade, was originally broadcast on local CBS affiliate WBZ Channel 4. (To view a clip from the show, click here).
The Sons of Serendip took to Twitter before the concert to keep fans appraised of the preparations they were making for the big performance. The group has been active on the social media platform over the past year in an effort to stay engaged with fans.

The quartet, whose style is a fusion of gospel, R&B, classical, and neo-soul music, finished fourth in last year’s America’s Got Talent competition. In an interview with The Summit on the night of the group’s final performance on the NBC variety show, Christian’s brother Aaron discussed how proud he was of his brother.
“It’s so exciting seeing him finally get to show his gift to the world,” he said. “He can sing beautifully. People at Stonehill know that…but now, the world knows. It’s great to see him finally achieving a dream that he always wanted to achieve.”
