Last night the PS22 Chorus of 2012 had the privilege of opening Sinead O'Connor's concert at The Highline Ballroom in Manhattan! After seeing the kids' incredible rendition of her song "Jackie" we posted on YouTube a couple of months back, Sinead had blogged and tweeted about her wish to somehow meet up with PS22. Her manager Fachtna contacted me soon after, asking if we would open the show! Of course there was no way we could turn down this incredible invitation! The kids put on a spectacular show for an absolutely brilliant audience! But this was the definitive highlight of the night, when Sinead O'Connor surprised us and came onstage to join the kids on their rendition of "Jackie!" Sinead elected to take a backseat and let the kids do their thing, which is further testament to how truly gracious a performer and person she is.
BONUS: Check out Sinead's performance of "Jackie" from the night before (February 23 at the Highline Ballroom), in which she dedicates the song to PS22!
Thanks to Sinead and everyone at her camp (Fachtna, Mimi, and Lisa) for making this happen! It was a dream come true for all of us! Thanks to Mr. Eberle for joining in on the guitar, Ms. Lisa for her fabulous videos, and Mrs. Johnson for all the great pics on this post! See more below!
