PS22 & Matisyahu at Matt Damon's ONEXONE Fundraiser!

It was an honor to have the PS22 Chorus help raise the roof last night with our old pal Matisyahu at the 3rd Annual ONEXONE Fundraiser at The Capitale in NYC! The organization is sponsored by Academy Award-winner Matt Damon, who proved his cool by taking the time to come up to the chorus's green room to thank and hang with the kids just before they hit the stage! And as far as Matisyahu is concerned, Brianna sums it up best on the bus ride home. (See the vid below!) I don't think you could find a more humble, down-to-earth performer. Thanks to them and everyone at ONEXONE for giving our kids a night to remember! The event was major, and featured such stars such as Patricia & David Arquette, Collective Soul, K'naan and Michael Franti as both performers and attendees. It was an honor to serve the cause! The kids really worked it out, giving a rousing performance, to say the least! And major props to Denise for her awesome soloing with Matis, and her beautiful intro of "No One" by Alicia Keys!

Big thanks to Ms. Lisa for her fantastic video footage and pics! Also thanks to Ms. Laurie, Mrs. Johnson, & Ms. Kaufmann for contributing some more great shots featured on this post, and just sharing in the fun!
