[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1gKYFZyvehE] If you can stand the barrage of screaming kids excited about-well, everything, you'll understand that PS22 has been invited to perform at the Academy Awards. Red carpet treatment and all.
I typically don't pay too much attention to award shows (sadly, this often includes the Oscars) but I'll probably watch this time. In the past, these kids have been pretty darn impressive for an inner city school choir.
Hats off to the director (former teacher of a friend of mine) who has used YouTube to take the choir to national acknowledgment. The internet is so powerful.
