After meeting Rihanna and Chelsea Clinton on Thursday night, the chorus certainly learned first-hand that when you give, it always come back to you. The kids generously donated their time and talent to perform at a fundraiser for DKMS, an organization dedicated to helping find bone marrow donors for those in need. They sang with rising star Cooper Boone on "One Song", a song he wrote for the organization, and it was an inspired collaboration, to say the very least!
Cooper is definitely an amazing person aside from being an amazing talent! He generously shared the spotlight with the chorus, and it was a definite showstopper! The performance was a definitive highlight of the fundraiser, which took place at Cipriani's on 42nd Street in New York City. It was indeed a star-studded gala which (aside from Rihanna and Chelsea Clinton) included the likes of Kylie Minogue, Vera Wang, Rachel Zoe, Betsey Johnson, Sarah Connor, Mario Cantone, and many more coming out to support the cause. It was a dream come true getting to sing for such a prestigious audience and the chorus sounded fantastic!
After the performance, Rihanna and Chelsea Clinton were inspired enough to come over to say hello and congratulate the kids, who were just a bit excited.... YEAH RIGHT!! I would venture to say that the kids are still doing their little happy dance that you see at the end of the video posted above!
It was an unforgettable night, and we were honored to be a part of the festivities, and to do our part for this worthy cause! See some more pics below....
