School choir to back Rolling Stones

You can't always get what you want. Unless, perhaps, you are a member of the Green Valley High School choir and you want a chance to sing on stage with the Rolling Stones.

The Nevada school's choir will join the Stones at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night for the encore performance of their hit song You Can't Always Get What You Want.

Choir director Kim Ritzer said she thought it was a joke when she first got a message on Facebook from someone she did not know inviting them to sing backup for the famous rockers.

She later learned a friend who teaches music at the University of Southern California had recommended the choir, based in Henderson.

"When I announced it to the kids, I think their parents were more excited than they were because some of them didn't even know who the Rolling Stones were," Ms Ritzer told KLAS-TV.

They sealed the deal with an audition via Skype for a representative of the band in London. The 24 singers have only had two weeks to learn the song they will perform with Mick Jagger and company on Saturday night.

"I called my dad. He was screaming at me over the phone and said, 'Are you kidding me?'" said Kyle Sorenson, a first year student in the Green Valley High choir.
