The group officially broke into the mainstream this year, with their YouTube channel passing the 17 million viewer mark and the children appearing on Oprah, performing with Common and Queen Latifah on Good Morning America, and singing at the White House’s National Tree Lighting ceremony in December. They also became recording stars, singing on a new album by indie-rock darlings Passion Pit.
“With their talent, grace, and warmth, the kids of P.S. 22 Chorus have won the hearts of millions of fans worldwide,” said David-Michel Davies, executive director of The Webby Awards. “We’re thrilled to honor these outstanding young men and women for reminding us all about the joy and power of music.”
The chorus and their director, Gregg Breinberg, will be honored at the 14th Annual Webby Awards Celebration on June 14 in New York City.
