A choir of homeless men have been invited to sing at America’s most famous home.

President and Mrs. Obama have invited the Homeward Choir, which is entirely made up of men who stay at the Central Night Shelter in Atlanta, Georgia, to perform at the White House on December 21.

“It’s been a complete whirlwind,” Donal Noonan, the choir’s director, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I’m so excited for the guys.”

Southwest Airlines has decided to fly all 26 choir members to Washington, DC for the concert.

As of November 21, the nonprofit group has raised more than $10,000 through its website and Facebook page to help pay for the rest of the trip– expenses like food, lodging, clothes, and musical accompaniment.
