CHICAGO -- A group of talented Chicago kids are headed to meet President Obama and the First Lady while performing during the annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House.

They’re known as the “Happiness Club”- an after school group for youth ages 6 to 21.

They come from all backgrounds— from every part of the city—and they’ve been spreading cheer for the last 25 years.

Monday, they’ll be performing in front of 35,000 guests on the White House lawn as part of the 137th annual Easter Egg Roll.

This year’s theme is “Gimmie Five” to celebrate the Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” initiative turning five years old.

The Happiness Club wrote two original songs they’ll be preforming.
