PS22 pays tribute to its best friend and avid supporter Perez Hilton by bringing his beautiful best-selling children's book with a timeless message to life! Perhaps the most fun we've ever had creating a video -- the kids acted, sang, and even co-wrote this fantastic production! You may have noticed a lull in our posting schedule the past few weeks. This is attributed to the fact that the chorus (and the classes involved) have been hard at work putting this short film together. We hope you love it as much as we do, and agree that it's been worth the wait! With that in mind, PS22 is extremely proud to present "The Boy With Pink Hair" by Perez Hilton, and we dedicate this project to you, Mr. P. Thanks for all the love, support, inspiration, and friendship. No one has done more for our children than you. It has been your continued support that kept the mind-blowing opportunities coming for our children. You've directly had a hand in changing many lives here in Staten Island, and of course all over the world as well. We are blessed to have you as part of our PS22 family!
We think the kids AND the staff that were kind enough to donate their time made this an extra-special PS22 performance! Leave a comment and let us know what YOU think!!
UPDATE 4-18-12: Check out this awesome acknowledgement from Perez AND also a tweet from Celtic Woman (who makes a musical cameo in the film) below!
UPDATE (5-6-12): PS22 Chorus received 100 signed books from Perez for all the kids who participated in the production!! What a class act! Here's a video of the kids saying thank you that was filmed on my cell phone!
