BASIN CITY, WA - A group of sixth grade girls from Basin City Elementary School are turning into some pretty impressive performers.

What started as a recess pastime back in November is now a musical masterpiece.

"It was always cold outside and we don't really want go out in the cold," said sixth grader Jacey Maef.

Math teacher Shafer Murray let the girls practice in his classroom giving them limited help but none of them have had proper singing lessons.

"We started sending videos to other people so they could listen to us and we got into like basketball games and we sang for the math night at our school," said sixth grader Marissa Lloyd.

And the kicker? They singe for Flaming Hot Cheetos.

Now, they're in talks with the Oakland A's to sing at a game. You can see them next month when they sing at the Tri-Cities Fever game on March 8th, the WSU-BYU baseball game and the high school baseball state championships.

"I think it's pretty amazing because I like the spotlight. Sometimes it's scary, like, ok, we can't mess up or else all these people are going to see us," said Lloyd.

Next year, the Country Cuties will move on from elementary and Mr. Murray. So, what's next?

"Let's hope in 7th grade he'll come chase us down and then we can just practice," said Lloyd.

The girls have a couple of YouTube videos up with hundreds of views already.
