The coolest video to go viral today was not even taken in Sochi. It was filmed right here in Kentucky. The high school all-state choir conference typically sings the national anthem on the balcony of their hotel room every night of the conference, but last night’s rendition of the song was especially moving, as students celebrated the start of the Sochi Olympics.
