The Fighter!

The fifth graders of the PS22 Chorus of 2012 proved themselves to be music class heroes with this incredible version of "The Fighter" by Gym Class Heroes (featuring Ryan Tedder)! Such a great version of a great song! And let's hear it for Daniel-san on the drums and his backup dancers(?)....

UPDATE: OneRepublic just tweeted about the PS22 Chorus cover of "The Fighter!"

From the masterpiece of an album entitled, THE LION AND THE COBRA, here is the PS22 Chorus of 2012 singing "Jackie" by the brilliant Sinead O'Connor). The kids love the song and really do it justice! Daniel on the drums is spectacular, and Briana handles the solo parts magnificently! Thanks go to Mr. Eberle for bringing in the electric for this one, and to Ms. Lisa, as always, for her beautiful filming! This performance will definitely prove to be an all-time favorite!

This Post Sponsored by the Letters V & V, and the Color BROWN!

The PS22 Chorus of 2012 got a fantastic treat yesterday when the group was visited by the enormously talented recording artist V V Brown and her guitarist Luke! It was a MAJOR event! The kids got together with V V on three of her songs, the first was her big hit, "Shark In The Water," and the next two are from her forthcoming album, Lollipops & Politics, called "Children" and "Famous!" Words can't describe the awesome atmosphere of music, inspiration, love and laughter in the room, so we'll just let the videos speak for themselves! Check them out below!

Thanks to Ms. Lisa for the beautiful videos, Ms. Laurie for the great pics (more below and more to come), Mr. Eberle for joining in on the bongos, Tara Chiari from EMI (and old friend from MY elementary school days) for setting this up, V V's guitarist Luke for jamming with us, and V V Brown herself for an unforgettable day of music, laughter, and inspiration!

PS22 Chorus Sings What You Know!

The new 2012 crew outdid themselves in this very different take on the amazing song by Two Door Cinema Club, "What You Know." I was determined to wait until Monday to post this, but the chorus sounds its absolute best so far this year, and my pride in their performance outweighs my determination. Congrats to Sharon for her beautiful melancholy delivery of the solo, Daniel-san for his amazing drumming(!!), and to the entire chorus for successfully taking the original song (which is an alternative pop masterpiece) to a whole new place!

UPDATE (11-8-11): Two Door Cinema Club has posted the PS22 Chorus version of "What You Know" to their Twitter & Facebook pages! Check it out below! Big thanks to the band for acknowledging the kids' "amazing cover!"
