The Chorus covers "Father's Son"......

After getting preliminary instruction on this song by Tori Amos herself, it seemed only fitting that we follow through.... Here are the results so far from today's rehearsal. Not too shabby!! And our Breana sounds G-R-E-A-T on the solo!!! YAY BANANA!!!!!! (Don't hurt me.)

Hi Gregg!

Everytime you post a new song that makes me cry, you're going to get a message!

You kids rock. Breana... way to go girl! I don't know what else to say except... WOW!!! :) And you made a Canadian girl smile!

Thanks again!

Mr. B said...

Thanks Cara! I hope you'll be sending us lots of messages under your terms! :)

And this is quite a coincidence!! Our goal today was to make a Canadian girl smile! Glad it was you!!

I was just randomnly searching for some blogs and came across yours. The song is too good! The voices of those tiny tots add so many flavours to the song, which i really relished. You're a good teacher I guess :)
