P.S. 22 Elementary School Choir Prepares To Sing At The Oscars

Your newest ticket to the Oscars? Being in an elementary school choir.

For the past few years, Staten Island's P.S. 22 Elementary School Choir has been receiving a lot of attention for their performances of pop songs- from Lady Gaga's "Just Dance" to songs by Coldplay and Sam Cooke. Their performances are moving, impressive, and have gained the attention not only of these world renowned artists- who have sung with these 5th graders- but also of the Academy Awards producers, where they will perform this year. Watch below as NYTimes' "Carpetbagger," Melena Ryzik, visits P.S. 22 to see how it all happened.
