Choir getting a taste of fame

June 11, 2004

Albany-- A South Georgia middle school choir is sharing the stage with an "American Idol" star.

The Lee County Middle School Choir is singing the classic song "Bridge Over Troubled Water."

The choir is singing back-up of the song for Clay Aiken--last year's runner-up in the American Idol contest. The students were selected by former first lady Rosalyn Carter to perform in the Celebration of Caregivers Gala she's hosting in Atlanta Tuesday.

The kids are ready to sing for the distinguished audience. They might be more nervous to meet the famous pop star. 6th Grader Narrissa Sneed says, "I love that he was like awesome, I was like oh, my gosh!"

8th Grader Sarah Thompson says, "This is an awesome opportunity, I think this is going to be a great experience, we have a great group of kids going, I'm glad to be a part of it."

The Lee County Middle School Choir has had a great year. lLast month they won the grand championship in the All-Star National Musical Contest in Orlando, beating out choirs from across the country.
