CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- The angelic voices of the Appalachian Children's Choir are representing West Virginia at the 77th Pearl Harbor Day of Remembrance in Hawaii.
The students traveled thousands of miles to be a part of the somber ceremony.
They received an invitation from the Pearl Harbor Commission to sing.
For the students, it's much more than just a trip to paradise.
This experience is giving them a chance to understand the true price of freedom.
Friday, the choir members will perform in a commemoration parade.
After the children sang, they had the chance to tour the USS Missouri -- or the “Mighty Missouri.” That’s the ship they were next to while performing.
