Soulstice a Cappella, Brisbane's most established a Cappella ensemble will host President Barack Obama next Friday where he will attend Soulstice: The Chart Toppers as part of the official G20 Summit After Party.
President Obama's love of a Cappella music is well known to all given the style's popularity in the United States and North America more generally. A spokesperson for The White House called President Obama's 11th hour decision to attend the concert "startling, but not surprising to those who know him well."
"It is a tremendous honour for Soulstice a Cappella and will be marked as "notable" in our performance history", said vague, look-alike performer Luke Furness.
Before leaving the APEC Summit in Beijing, China, Mr Obama stressed his attendance at Australian cultural events would "strengthen the ties between the US and its most important ally in the Asia Pacific."
He also implored other world leaders to follow suit and join the sing-a-long. "I will be asking Chancellor Merkel to join me in the VIP area. People think of her as conservative, but after a couple of Weizenbiers, she'll be up on stage like it's 1989!"
Due to overwhelming disappointment at the "invitation only" nature of his other public appearances, Soulstice: Chart Toppers is open to all who love a Cappella music and having fun.
Local and international media will attend the event, broadcasting the President’s dance moves to a global audience.
Students and other audience members are advised to travel to the venue by Black Hawk helicopter if possible.
The President's love of a Cappella music was famously satirised by You Tube star "baracksdubs" earlier this year.
