I reported a story for WFAE on the UNC Charlotte men's soccer team and its unlikely berth in the sport's College Cup, the equivalent to the Final Four. Unlikely, because the team was unranked, and it upset powerhouse UCONN. They eventually made it all the way to the finals but lost to UNC Chapel Hill.
While reporting, I discovered that one of the team's star seniors was also a singer. I convinced him to sing a Stevie Wonder Christmas song on tape, which wonderfully made it into the piece.
