A Great Big World & PS22 Chorus are ROCKSTARS!

After turning out a magnificent cover of the brilliant song, "Say Something," the kids of PS22 Chorus were treated to a visit from the fantastic gentlemen of A Great Big World! The two groups joined forces for a couple of smashing performances, starting with a powerful version of the aforementioned hit originally performed with Christina Aguilera! Chorus member Alyssa gave her seat to band member Chad Vaccarino and shared the piano bench and soloing duties with Ian Axel and did a knock-out job! Then the adrenalin kicked in for an unbelievable version of "Rockstar" that featured some seriously cool three and four part harmonies! After we did the two songs we planned, the guys taught the chorus a part for their song, "I Really Want It!" AND we also had a fun impromptu jam with Ian on our friends' The Mowgli's song, "San Francisco!"  Check out all four of the amazing performances below!!

Wonderful to see the great response the videos have gotten from the likes of The Huffington Post, Perez Hilton, PopCrush, VH1, and even MTV Buzzworthy! Our "Say Something" video was #1 of the Top 10 entertainment news pieces on the televised Showbiz Tonight! We leave you with some fantastic pics courtesy of Mrs. Johnson and Ms. Lisa (our videographer)! More pics can be found on our Facebook page!

You are already stars, but I hope you know that already. And you sing with so much emotion.. Although I think Alyssy had to hide a smile while she was not singing.

And how cool is it that Ingrid Michaelson keeps watching PS22 videos and told the band about your video? Did I mention that you are stars?

These two songs, and all of your passion and enjoyment of singing, has just made my WHOLE weekend! Thank you! You're all brilliant!
