Three Little Birds told me....




Back in October 2006 when the blog was just a baby, I posted a song from this Radio City Music Hall performance from June, 2005. I just discovered this little treasure -- "Three Little Birds" by Bob Marley.

Enjoy that and another stand-out song from this performance, "Simple Song Of Freedom" by Bobby Darin. This version owes a lot to The Voices of East Harlem, whose cover of "Simple Song" is one of my favorite recordings of all time. Oscar-nominee Matthew Modine was also in attendance at this performance, and had some really great words after he heard the kids. You can watch a video of that below too.

i love the blog but is there any way you can make it so that the first video doesn't play automatically? I've gotten blasted a couple of times accidentally.
