Sophomore Matt Lee, a music business major and student worker in the Office of Alumni, will be performing with his band Full Armor next week for Pope Benedict XVI in New York City. Full Armor was chosen from more than 150 bands that auditioned for the slot and will perform three songs in front of an anticipated crowd of 20,000 at the Pope’s Youth Rally on April 19. Other performers that day include Kelly Clarkson and Third Day. Lee, who plays the violin, said the band formed two years ago to play for a weekly teen mass at a Catholic church in a suburb of New York, and Full Armor’s second album is scheduled to be completed by the end of April.
