One Day II



You may recall that the PS22 Chorus of 2009 scored big last year with a brilliant cover of Bjork's "One Day." Here is an equally brilliant version of another great song of the same name by reggae singer Matisyahu from our 2010-ers!! For sure it's one of their best. And congrats to Leah for nailing the solo!




UPDATE (2-11-10): Congrats to the chorus for scoring a YouTube Honor without any major celebrity assistance (as of yet!).

I was a member of PS22 Chorus from 1974-76! Back then we sang Bob Dylan's "Blowing in the Wind", Simon and Garfunkel's "Feeling Groovy", Peter, Paul and Mary's "If I Had a Hammer" and "Leaving on a Jetplane" just to name a few. Of course there was no YouTube back then, but I don't know if any parents might have some home movies in their basement somewhere. Have you heard from anyone else from before your time, Mr B?

Mr. B said...

@neils, i've heard from a few ps22 alumni that were inquiring about the school song at the time. (PS22 -- Give a helping hand?) hope you can find some of those home movies! :)

What a great song for the kids to sing, they did a wonderful job as usual! A lot of kids their age try to grow up way too fast, but I adore the fact that they just like to be kids and have fun. Love the message of the song too, I hope the kids get to perform this song somewhere! I think it would cause a lot of tears (happy tears of course). Bravo Mr. B and choir!!

I know you probably get a lot of requests for the choir, but I think "Stand Up For Love" by Destiny's Child would be a great song for them to sing. It's another song with a great message!
