HARLEM - The Ray Chew Youth Choir of Harlem is performing in what many are calling the show of a lifetime.

The choir, comprised of a dozen young men from the tri-state area, will sing for the nation?s new president at the Inaugural Ball Tuesday night. Four of the performers are the Bronx's own. Choir director Dr. Eric Turner is confident in his singers? abilities to dazzle the crowd.

?I?m very excited," said choir member Dontae Jones. ?This is a historic moment ... a very great opportunity.?
