Appalachian Children's Choir performs at Pearl Harbor Remembrance ceremony in Hawaii

By  | 

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.
