Uniondale High School show choir performs on 'Today Show'
Uniondale High School’s Rhythm of the Knights show choir was named “Most Promising New Group” at the Fame Show Choir National Championship Series Finals in Chicago April 26-27.
That showing earned the school’s choir and jazz band one more performance — on Thursday’s edition of “The Today Show.”
The students were there as part of the “Today” Varsity Week. Along with a performance of the song “Rhythm of the Night,” Uniondale High School Show Choir director Lynnette Carr-Hicks, and show choir student performer Courtney Porter were interviewed by “Today” personalities Natalie Morales, Matt Lauer, Al Roker and Savannah Guthrie.
Carr-Hicks, a drama and music teacher who's starred on Broadway, started the show choir with 15 students in September 2010.
