When you think of a performance of a gay men's chorus, you probably don't think of Britney Spears tunes.

But maybe you should... at least when you think of the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles.

The group recently performed the pop star's 2013 hit "Work Bitch" at a concert in Los Angeles and it was everything (as you can see above).

"Work Bitch is just one song that was part of last week's 'Vegas Baby!' concert featuring music by our favorite Vegas icons - from Elvis, Frank Sinatra, Wayne Newton, and Sammy Davis Jr. to Bette Midler, Celine Dionne, Shania Twain, and yes - Britney Spears," Dr. Joe Nadeau, GMCLA Artistic Director and Conductor, told The Huffington Post in an email. Even more incredible, according to Nadeau, "Britney Spears joined us as an audience member for Saturday's performance and loved it!"

"GMCLA always takes on a variety of musical styles, from moving choral pieces to elaborate dance numbers," added Robert Hill, who is a musical arranger and a member of the group. "We wanted our take on 'Work Bitch' to be fun and unexpected. When we found out Britney was in the audience the energy level went through the roof, and I think that showed in our performance! We were thrilled to get such a positive reaction from the audience and from Britney, and happy that people are enjoying the video."

And GMCLA isn't just about having a good time. Currently celebrating its 36th season, Nadeau notes the group also has "an extensive youth outreach/anti-bullying program with our Alive Music Project (AMP) and "It Gets Better" tour that reaches thousands of young people with a message of acceptance and hope each year."
