Singing their way to Washington
Internet hit nets inaugural invite
The feel-good story of the week comes out of Atlanta. A group of students at Ron Clark Academy thought they'd just be performing their song 'Dear Obama' at a news conference this week. But after finishing the song, the kids got a big surprise.
They will perform their new song during at least four inaugural balls next Tuesday. At one of the events, these talented youngsters will share the stage with Atlanta pop singer Usher and R&B legend Patti LaBelle.
The students wrote the new song as a follow-up to their YouTube hit You Can Vote However U Like, which landed the kids on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” CNN, and BET. The song was written to the tune of rapper T.I.’s megahit “Whatever You Like.”
