Oak Ridge Boys perform with Cherokee choir

Cherokee National Youth Choir to perform with Oak Ridge Boys

By Brandi BallEarlier this year, they shared a stage with country superstar Vince Gill. This time, the Cherokee National Youth Choir is ready to perform with legends.

Opening for the Oak Ridge Boys on Thursday at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa, the choir will perform “The Star Spangled Banner” and “Lean on Me.” The groups will share the stage for an encore of “Elvira.”

On Jan. 15, in front of a sold-out crowd at The Joint, the youth choir joined Gill in a rendition of “Go Rest High on That Mountain.”

“It is a great leadership exercise when our youth get the opportunity to perform on stage with such well-known talent, especially when our youth are performing in Cherokee,” Chad Smith, principal chief of the Cherokee Nation, said in a statement. “This is another opportunity for our youth choir to see the production and witness a performance of such great magnitude.”
