“Singing at the White House felt like a warm rush of joy falling down into my heart.”
It was the “best evening of my twelve-year old life!”
These are just some impressions by members of the Senior Division of American Youth Chorus (age 11 to 14) when they sang for over an hour at a holiday reception at the White House late last year.
After the students performed, they were given a private tour. But what topped an already special evening was that to everyone’s surprise, our young people had the opportunity to meet First Lady Michelle Obama. Mrs. Obama was so gracious speaking for a few minutes and shaking every singer’s hand before posing for photos.
