Singer in the Spotlight
COREY LEAK, Tenor
When asked about his favorite performance with CCA, Corey didn’t hesitate. He was the soloist for the CCA virtual production of “That Lonesome Road” and loves singing that song because Corey had the pleasure of performing it with James Taylor when he was a member of the Boys Choir of Harlem. Corey is also a former member of the Operatic Chorus at the Met in NYC and the Jubilee and Symphonic Choirs of Westminster Choir College.
Singing and performing are two of Corey’s passions. He is the music teacher at Lucile Souders Elementary School and has been singing with CCA for three years. “One of the biggest rewards I’ve been blessed with is giving back and teaching my students. Getting the chance to pour what I’ve been given into them and watch their imaginations soar is an amazing opportunity I never get tired of.” Corey is also on the Praise Team at Watts Chapel Baptist Church in Raleigh.
In his free time, Corey loves to travel with his family and will hit the road whenever possible. He also loves catching a good action flick at the theater.
“My son and husband are my inspirations, and they are two of my reasons for pushing myself to always be better than I was the day before.”
