A huge group of Kentucky high school students brought a whole meaning to getting patriotic.

The Kentucky All-State High School Chorus, which includes hundreds of members, lined up on 18 floors of the Hyatt Hotel in Louisville, Ky. to sing the national anthem.

So, why did they do it?

According to Lex18.com, the students were in town for the Kentucky Music Educators Association conference, where the All-State choir performs, and it's their tradition to perform the song on the weekend of the performances.

They do it every night at 11 p.m. before bed.

The students didn't have a choir director in tow, so they decided to pop up around the hotel and croon the "Star Spangled Banner."

"The national anthem is something that's so special to all of us, and when we come and we sing it and it sounds so good," choir member Olivia House told the site. "It's just an amazing feeling."
