PEARLS



I don't know if the PS22 Chorus has ever moved me as much as the kids do here, singing this hauntingly beautiful song by the extraordinary Sade called "Pearls." Brielle takes her vocals to new heights,and the entire chorus is simply mesmerizing. I literally cannot watch this without welling up. A new favorite.



UPDATE (2-13-10): Thanks to Ashton Kutcher for tweeting and linking to the PS22 Chorus version of "Pearls" on his Twitter page.

Beautiful beyond measure, disarmingly innocent - I just can't find the right words to describe this.
I just found out about the PS22 today and I'm already hooked on you guys and your absolutely astonishing works, but "Pearls" really got me deep - my regards to all of you, but especially Brielle, who made me feel the song =)

Good luck PS22, I impatiently await your next masterpieces! :)

PS: Is there going to be some more stuff with Tirzah from the 2009 crew? That girl got an amazing voice.

Hi there!

Your chorus is lovely! I am also an elementary general music/ chorus teacher :). I know you are extremely busy, but would it be possible for me to come and observe you for a couple of days? Thank you!

Hey Brielle and all the PS 22 Chorus...just a really, really great job on Pearls. I didn't realize that this if from Sade's recently released album. That by itself is cool.

Maybe we should start an "Everybody Point at Mr. B and Laugh" campaign on the Internet...
