And all the money they earn goes into saving at risk kids.  
Its  the ultimate feel good event of the new year. 

  But here   is the skinny on the choir :

Vy Higginsen's Gospel for Teens Choir is a nationally recognized and award winning ensemble.

 The subject of an acclaimed "60 Minutes" profile in 2011, the choir is comprised of talented young performers who received their training through Gospel for Teens, a program of Ms. Higginsen's Mama Foundation and her School of Gospel, Jazz and R&B Arts. Offered to young people between the ages of 13 and 19 at no cost, the program's mission is to teach the art of gospel music, as well as to acknowledge the contributions that it - and all African-American music - makes to American culture.

The Gospel for Teens Choir took the grand prize in the open division at the 2011 Pathmark Gospel Choir Competition of Harlem (their very first competition) and then went on to another win at Verizon's How Sweet the Sound Gospel Competition.

In addition to "60 Minutes," the choir's other national TV appearances include performances on "The Celebrity Apprentice," "The CBS Early Show," and "The Nate Berkus Show." Recent performances include the prestigious TED Conference in Long Beach, CA; the Stellar Gospel Music Awards in Nashville, TN; the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration at Rollins College in Winter Park, FL; and Moncler Grenoble's winter show for New York Fashion Week. The Gospel for Teens Choir has had the privilege to perform with such artists as Cissy Houston, Arsenio Hall and Clay Aiken, and Madonna.
