CHAMPAIGN -- Some students at Centennial are getting a once in a lifetime opportunity. The choir will get to sing at The State Farm Center with Kenny Rogers. The group is called Expressions. They'll get to sing back up for four of his songs and then get to sing one by themselves. It is 'First Noel' but with a twist. Students say they weren't too familiar with Kenny Rogers before but know this is a big deal.
The students get to rehearse with Kenny Rogers before the show and get a meet and greet.
The choir is getting paid. Their teacher says the money will go into their choral fund.
