FAME Comes to PS22 CHORUS of 2010!

Today the NEW PS22 Chorus of 2010 got a visit from Naturi Naughton, Anna Maria Perez de Tagle, Kherington Payne, and Asher Book -- the castmembers from the upcoming major motion picture, FAME! The kids sang with Naturi on the title song of the film, and it was a blast! With just a few DAYS into the new school year, it's hard to believe the kids were able to pull this performance off as well as they did! Sure signs of good things to come!

In addition to the actors, on hand to present a $30,000 check for a new keyboard lab to PS22 were FAME director Kevin Tancharoen, VH1 Save The Music Foundation Executive Director Paul Cothran, and Director Of Music for New York City Department of Education Barbara Murray.

It was great to see the new chorus make such an impact on our guests! You could see the delight in their faces at the exuberant singing of the all-new PS22 Chorus!

Naturi even tweeted about the kids on her Twitter page after it was all over!

NY1 was also on hand to film the event and you can watch their coverage of the event here.

Big thanks to everyone at VH1, MGM, and of course the cast of FAME for both the incredible donation and for giving our kids a day they'll never forget! See some more great pictures below!
