A Devils Lake second-grader will be getting the opportunity of a life-time soon.

Hunter Street had a normal day at school Tuesday.

But on Wednesday he'll be flying to Washington, D.C. to sing in front of President Obama and those in attendance at the White House Tribal Nations Conference.

The journey started when a YouTube video of Hunter was submitted to the National Congress of American Indians.

Hunter will be performing the Lakota Flag Song at the conference.

He has been practicing at home and even at school in front of his class.

His mom isn't sure who's more excited.

"I received some information with the tentative agenda and it says President Obama and I'm like, oh my gosh, this is real, this is really happening," said Merrick.

You can watch Hunter sing the flag song through a webcast of the opening ceremonies at WhiteHouse.gov.

The opening ceremony begins 7:30 am Central time.
