PS22 Chorus Gets "The Call"



Well our friend Perez Hilton has done it again! He posted one of our new videos, "The Call" by Regina Spektor from the movie, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, and within hours of posting has already gotten major attention on the internet! The kids outdid themselves, doing some three part harmonies, and Allie and Tirzah are magnificent as a duo! Perez had requested a song by Regina, and this was the obvious choice. Thanks to Perez for all his support! It makes us so proud to know that he deems us worthy viewing for his mass audience. Here are 2 songs from a rather prolific practice this afternoon!


The Call by Regina Spektor

Everybody's Changing by Keane


Perez was kind enough to send a message to the kids:

Such a lovely rendition!
Thanks so much.
I'm sure Regina will be thrilled too.
xoxo

Congrats kids on adding to your list of major accomplishments in a year filled with them!! I know you believe me now when I tell you you're the best!! And of course, thanks to Miss Lisa for her beautiful filming!!

Below are some honors the video has received within hours of posting. Also proud to report that the video is the 7th most e-mailed video on Perez's blog!

You are such an incredibly inspirational teacher. As a fellow educator, my hat is completely off to you. You are making kids love music, and there is no greater gift in the world.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for what you do.
