On Monday, the PS22 Chorus was named Artist of The Year at the 14th Annual Webby Awards at Cipriani's in Manhattan. It was a star-studded ceremony and the kids completely stole the show! Below is an awesome behind-the-scenes video that features the following:

1) The PS22 Chorus sing "Closer" by Ne-Yo (in above photo) at soundcheck.
2) The kids meet Ne-Yo and freak out....
3) The kids perform the customary 5 word acceptance speech at the ceremony.
("Five Words? Okay. Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcaniconiosis. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!")
4) The kids get some great messages from Buzz Aldrin, Jason Bateman, Amy Poehler, Lisa Kudrow, Isabella Rossellini, Ben Folds, & B.J. Novak!

Ashley your face is absolutely priceless! This is what it's all about Great kids getting fantastic opportunities because of all the hard work and dedication they put in day after day! The comments by Buzz, Jason and all the rest are so true and how awesome that the cast of The Office is as addicted as the rest of us!
