Set to perform at US President Barack Obama’s reception at Rashtrapati Bhavan on Monday, the Shillong Chamber choir, which won an Indian reality show, is busy practising its notes for the big evening.

The 16-member troupe, which also grabbed the gold at the World Choir Olympics, arrived in Delhi on Saturday.

“It’s exciting to be performing for one of the most influential men in the world. We are practicing the tunes, we are performing in Hindi, English and Khasi,” Damon Lyndem, bass singer of the choir, said on Sunday.

The group, which came to the limelight after winning Color’s realty show India’s Got Talent-Khoj 2, will sing four songs, including the famous Hindi song Ye Dosti Hum Nahi Todenge from the film Sholay, an English number and a Khasi Operatic composition.

According to the troupe members, they were approached for the performance by the external affairs ministry much before the final results for the talent show were announced.
