Gold Dust



Our newest Tori Amos cover, "Gold Dust", performed so beautifully by The PS22 Chorus. Then of course leave it to Justin & Josh to completely ruin the atmosphere with an evil rap.... Evil.

Those kids are hilarious! There must be a fabulous amount of trust between you and your students that brings out the freedom for them to express themselves... even if it is to your demise! haha.
Is your chorus part of the daily specials at your school, or is it a special group that meets after school hours? Do the students audition for this chorus? I'd love to know more about how you built this program.

RIDMILA: Yeah, the kids have definitely kept your tradition of greatness going! I'm really proud of them, but don't sell your accomplishments with the chorus short. Don't forget, you guys were with me on the happiest day of my life -- May 4, 2007 -- Tori day! :)

MEL: Great to hear from you again -- happy you enjoyed Gold Dust, the kids really did a brilliant job on it. Thanks for the congrats, it's been quite a year. :)

is this an old video? because i swear i see some familiar classmates. one of the girls in the video looks like a girl named radwa

Mr. B said...

hi brittany! nope, these vids are new. however, i understand your confusion. you must be talking about one of Radwa's sisters. she has TWO of them in chorus. :)

I do hope Em & the Fam meant to your detriment & not your demise. Would hate to lose you! The boys really were a riot!
Gold Dust has struck gold. Another beautiful Tori rendition. Kudos to you & the chorus.

Mr. B said...
