Now and BEN!

PS22 Chorus legend Ben returned for a visit the last week of school, and I was fortunate enough to have the trusty video camera along to record him singing a little piece of "Lord I Give You My Heart", by Michael W. Smith. Ben does an AMAZING job, needless to say. His piano skills are extremely impressive, considering he's only taught himself how to play in the last couple of years. Ben's a major talent, and we see a bright future ahead of him.

Here are some other classic PS22 BEN performances, including his rendition of Kirk Franklin's "Now Behold The Lamb" which has scored over 56,000 hits over the internet!

Ben taught me this spiritual, "Step By Step", which we incorporated into PS22's Martian musical, True Colors

Ben sings his a capella version of "Not Guilty" by John P. Kee for our second American Idol competition

And here is an updated version of the same song when Ben came to chill before this year's Holiday Choral Concert

A short but sweet rendition of Go Tell It On The Mountain
