Indianapolis Children's Choir lands big Super Bowl gig

February 2, 2012

Forty-five members of Indianapolis Children's Choir will sing the national anthem along with recording artist Kelly Clarkson at the Super Bowl in Indianapolis on Sunday, the local not-for-profit announced Thursday.

The choir members will be conducted by ICC founder Henry Leck and Assistant Artistic Director Joshua Pedde.

Clarkson, the very first "American Idol" winner and a Grammy award recipient, had already been announced as the singer of "The Star-Spangled Banner."

The opportunity will provide major exposure for the choir, which was founded 26 years ago. Last year's Super Bowl was watched by a record 111 million people.

Leck and Pedde have conducted the ICC at other major sporting events, including NCAA Final Four games and the Indy 500 Festival, the choir said.
