Christmas came early for the Delilahs, an all-female a cappella group from the College of the Holy Cross, whose 12 members performed at the White House today.

The Delilahs, founded in 1993 by a group of women from the class of 1996, were invited to sing holiday songs for guests as they toured the “People’s House.”

Elizabeth Mahoney ’13, from Dover, Mass., sent an application to perform several months ago.

“I thought it was such a long shot that I didn’t even bring it up to the group,” she said. “I told my co-chair, but I just didn’t want to get anyone else’s hopes up.”

The 12 members of the group, who perform regularly on campus, sang classic holiday songs as tour groups passed through the White House. Their set list included “Silent Night,” “Deck the Halls,” “Come All Ye Faithful,” “Joy to the World,” “Jingle Bell Rock” and “Winter Wonderland,” among others.

Mahoney said the group is oh-so merry that it was invited.

“We’re really humbled by this opportunity, and really excited about it,” said Mahoney.

In addition to Mahoney, the other group members, and their hometowns, are:

  • Lauren Clair ’16, Walden, N.Y.
  • Emma Colbert ’13 (co-chair), Westborough, Mass.
  • Eva Coll ’13, Washington, D.C.
  • Betsy Glynn ’16, Brightwaters, N.Y.
  • Stefania Khoda ’16, Georgetown, Mass.
  • Emma Linsenmeyer ’16, Fairfield, Conn.
  • Natasha Meyer ’16, Elm Grove, Wis.
  • Stephanie Montilla ’13, Providence, R.I.
  • Dorisanne Ragon ’13, Virginia Beach, Va.
  • Margaret Rogers ’15, Rumford, R.I.
  • Michelizabeth Sainvill ’14, New York
