PS 22

PS22 in Staten Island (PS stands for Public School) is a chorus group of 10-year singers with great skills and an even greater director. He has them sing all sorts of more adult pop songs from Tori Amos, the Doors, Stevie Nicks, theme from Fame, etc.

Here's one video of them doing Landslide by Stevie Nicks - hilarious to hear them sing:

Time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I'm gettin' older too.

Every one of them is selling the song and to look into their beautiful faces is to have believe in the future. I know this is why many teachers teach and this is why I fight for public education.

Kids are hope.
