In 1998, First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton invited to the White House a group of twelve college friends who’d sung together in an a capella group. They called themselves Straight No Chaser and the song they performed was the standard The 12 Days of Christmas. They made it even more of a classic than it already way.
This group of talented vocalists shot to stardom on the power of their White House performance. Including the old Toto hit Africa, they thrilled the audience and made history. This song has been downloaded now more than any other holiday tune up to this point. Straight No Chaser is still getting together at least once a year and doing live shows as well. These guys have it, whatever it is.
This video is pure magic. I love it more every time I see it. Thankfully I am not alone in my admiration for these talented men. Straight No Chaser, indeed.
