Here's some sunshine on a rainy day.
Thanks to Candy ah este Belly, I came across Mr. B and his choir of 5th graders at New York's PS 22. They've made Suzanne Vega and Tori Amos cry. They've performed live with Crowded House. Private Universe! They recorded with Passion Pit. The kids singing in Little Secrets - that's them. Wow!
Mr. B is on a mission to keep music alive - and kicking and rocking - in US public schools threatened by budget cuts. Check out the kids' faces while they're singing. You just know none of them are going to get into any trouble. As Neil Finn of Crowded House says: it's the most hopeful sound on earth.
Here's their version of Fleetwood Mac's Landslide. Get the hankies out.
