Five Lee University students from Birmingham and Hoover will take part in a 200 member choir performance at the Jan. 21 presidential inauguration. The Lee University Festival Choir will sing just before the public swearing in of President Barack Obama.

The Festival Choir was invited to perform at the inauguration last November by U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN), who is vice chair of the Joint Congressional Committee of Inaugural Ceremonies.

Lee University student Jessica Lamb, who is a graduate of Spain Park High School in Hoover, said that taking part in the performance came as a pleasant surprise for her.

"When I decided to come to Lee University, I never felt I'd be doing this," she said. "But I'm really excited about it."

Lamb is one of the many students of music at Lee University, located in Cleveland, Tenn. She is studying vocal music and theater education. Keaton Kendrick, also a graduate of Spain Park, was similarly surprised but pleased.

"I'm honestly excited about it," he said. "I was shocked that I made it in. There are so many phenomenal singers in the choir and it's a great experience to be part of that group. It's a privilege that they picked us for it."
