We need to extend yet another tip of the hat to Capt. Mark Ware of the Sandy Springs Fire Department in Georgia and Lt. Rodney Brooks with the Henry County Fire Department in Georgia. The duo won NFPA's national contest and had the opportunity to sing the song at this week's Conference and Expo, beating out 14 other entries with more than 2,700 votes.
They first discovered their ability to sing in unison while brass band players at their high school in Stockbridge, Georgia. They have since crooned at an array of events, from private functions to community events. Some notables are Firefighter Recognition Day at Georgia's state capitol and the Georgia Association of Fire Chiefs Convention.
Today: NFPA's Conference. Tomorrow: American Idol? Too soon to tell, but the duo already has a national competition under their belt. Congrats, guys!
