Team Lachey' Gives Encore Performance On New Year's Eve

Some hometown heroes sang in the New Year in Cincinnati.Members of "Team Lachey" -- the choir of locals that pop star Nick Lachey led to victory on NBC's "Clash of the Choirs" -- performed on Fountain Square downtown as the clock ticked toward the start of 2008."It's been kind of wierd, having people come through, asking for autographs," Nick Wall said.

Choir member and Lakota West High School math teacher Chuck Merk said it was a chance for the group to give back for all the support they received from the community.Lachey himself wasn't able to make it.Mayor Mark Mallory said the TV choir competition this month provided an opportunity to show the country and the world that Cincinnati is a great place to be.The winners brought home $250,000 for Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center."You will be seeing more of Team Lachey. You can count on it," Wall said.
