Vor kurzem hat mich Ole auf einen ganz wundervollen Schulchor aufmerksam gemacht: P.S. 22 Chorus
The PS22 Chorus is an elementary school chorus from Public School 22 in Graniteville, Staten Island (New York). It is composed of 60-70 fifth-graders, and is directed by Gregg Breinberg. Students are assigned to the chorus after an annual auditioning process at the beginning of each school year. PS22 is the largest elementary school in Staten Island which pulls from a wide cross section of ethnic groups and socio-economic levels. The chorus meets twice a week during school hours to practice, and performs throughout the year at school functions, local events, and on special requests. It has been featured on several major national news and music networks after its videos had gained international attention within the popular video-sharing site YouTube. As of May 17, 2010 the chorus’s videos have been watched more than 17,000,000 times.
Wenn man bei YouTube „P.S. 22 Chor“ eingibt erhält man eine ganze Reihe an Ergebnissen. Habe ein Stück rausgesucht, was mir besonders gefiel, da es direkt ins Herz geht…
