A couple dozen University of Buffalo students got a shock Monday afternoon after receiving an e-mail from UB asking if they would like to sing the national anthem for the president.

Zach Carr is the business manager for the Buffalo Chips, an all male acapella group for UB who says it's been a whirlwind to try and get everyone together but has been incredibly exciting too.

"UB hasn't had a president here since the 1800's so this a monumental event , it means the world to me and I know it means the world to the Buffalo Chips as well the Royal Pitches. It's incredible, I'm incredibly honored and humbled."

The Royal Pitches is UB's all female acapella group who will be joining the Buffalo Chips on stage Thursday.
