PS22 Chorus Celebrate DO SOMETHING's birthday with HANSON!

On Wednesday, June 5th, the PS22 Chorus performed at the 20th birthday celebration of DO SOMETHING at The Hammerstein Ballroom! The kids performed a winning medley of three 90's songs including "Iris" by The Goo Goo Dolls, "Wonderwall" by Oasis, and "MMMBop" by Hanson, which segued into Hanson taking the stage for their performance! The audience went duly wild, and it was a definite highlight of the evening! But for us, the undisputed highlight of the night actually took place offstage... Hanson came backstage to meet, thank, and congratulate the kids before the show, and broke into an impromptu performance of "MMMBop" with the chorus! It sounded AMAZING and the grown-up child stars showed that not only have they grown musically, more importantly, that they are just the coolest, most down to earth people! So happy this moment was captured and big thanks to Hanson and DO SOMETHING for making this happen!

VH1 News showed an excerpt of the kids' performance in their coverage of the event and Hanson's praise for their amazing job, lauded the acoustic "basement" performance as well, and Hanson tweeted about our "great kids!" You can check that out below!

Lastly, check out these great pics of the kids from the event courtesy of Victor Breinberg, which includes some great shots with Hanson and even a shot with co-founder of Do Something, Andrew Shue!

I was at this event which was a delight and an inspiration. The choir was fab and as a Hanson fan I was in the crowd that went wild.
Hanson have been making wonderful music for 21 years and they are an inspiration to music lovers ... just like your wonderful choir.
