Here is a selection from the PS22 Chorus performance at the World Trade Center Museum. It was truly an emotional day, and the wonderful folks at Tribute WTC made us feel right at home. The song was beautifully filmed by professional videographer Jonathan Rivera, uncle of Carmelo, the former chorus member (current headbanger!) who sang at the museum with us.
The song is "We're N.Y.C." originally "It's Gonna Be Me" by N'Sync. The song was rewritten by one of our fifth grade classes as their contribution to our Sept. 11 tribute movie, THE CONFERENCE that is currently being featured as part of an exhibit at the museum.
AND NOW SOME GREAT PHOTOS!
