Robbins Lane Chorus Appears on The Today Show

The Robbins Lane Elementary School chorus received some national recognition for a good deed through an appearance on The Today Show in August.

The chorus helped celebrate co-host Hoda Kotb’s birthday by performing her mash-up of “True Colors” and “Brave” for the spring concert, an effort that aided in raising more than $2,000 for pediatric cancer research. The Today Show took an interest in the students’ accomplishment and helped Robbins Lane surprise Kotb with the news on her birthday.

“Though the mention was brief, she was truly moved to hear the chorus sing ‘Truly Brave’ on her birthday,” said Robbins Lane Elementary School teacher Lori-Ann Pizzarelli.
