Shillong Chamber Choir to perform for President Obama

By The Assam Tribune

SHILLONG, Oct 30 (PTI) - After holding the nation spellbound with western chorals and Hindi classics on a TV reality show, the Shillong Chamber Choir will now have a very special audience - US President Barack Obama.

The young group of singers from Shillong, dubbed as the 'rock capital of India', is scheduled to perform for the US President and his wife Michelle at President Pratibha Patil's presidential banquet at the Rashtrapati Bhavan on November 8.

"We have been invited by the Government of India through the Ministry of External Affairs. The invitation came much before we won the reality show," said Damon Lyndem, bass singer and media coordinator for the choir, which had won 'India's Got Talent - Khoj 2 on Colors TV earlier this month.

'To God be the Glory' and 'Deep River' are among the probable numbers to be performed by the choir before President Obama and First Lady Michelle.
