PS22 Chorus Is Overwhelmed by Underwood!

Yesterday the PS22 Chorus of 2012 was treated to one of the most wonderful musical guests we've ever had the pleasure of hosting, the amazing Ms. Carrie Underwood, who took the time out of a busy schedule of promoting her new album to come visit and make music with our favorite fifth graders!! The kids had the pleasure of performing 2 songs for, then with Carrie. Check out this jaw-dropping performance of her debut single, "Good Girl" with Carrie and the kids!! The dueling solo parts between Carrie and PS22's Kevin was one of the most startlingly amazing musical moments I've ever been lucky enough to witness! Easy to see why her new album is called, "Blown Away," because we ALL were!!
And this next video is the more emotionally driven of PS22's two recent performances with Carrie Underwood. Whereas our first collaboration on the previously posted "Good Girl" is an energy-driven rollercoaster ride, this version of Carrie's hit, "So Small," is a stunning impassioned masterpiece. Our personal favorite moment comes at the conclusion of the second verse, when Kahlil and Kiarah get together for a gorgeous duet on the second verse, and Carrie, obviously lost in the moment, almost forgets to come in on the refrain! Some fantastic bonus footage (both silly and emotional) from the visit is included here as well...
Biggest thanks to Carrie and her management for coming to us for an unforgettable day of music-making! Also thanks to Ms. Lisa for the amazing video footage, and Scott Vollweiler for his incredible photo contributions to this post!   (Additional great pics provided by Victor & Steven Breinberg!)  More to come....

Are you sure you're only teaching music, Mr. B? I think you're teaching so much more.
