Viewers who hung around through the Best Picture speeches for ‘The Kings Speech’ at ‘The 83rd Annual Academy Awards’ (Sun., 8:30PM on ABC) were surprised with a special treat to wrap the broadcast. In years past, things tend to wrap quickly after that final speech. Sometimes, the show has ended along with the speech.
This year, though, there was a special musical number by the PS22 Chorus, an internationally popular 5th and 6th grade chorus out of the Public School 22 in Graniteville, Staten Island in New York. Since 2006, the chorus has been gaining more and more noteriety thanks to director Gregg Breinberg’s promotion of them online.
