We all worry about what younginâ€™s will become tomorrow, yet we forget that they are someone today. No, Iâ€™m not talking about Lil Romeo, Lil Bow Wow, or Young Money. Iâ€™m raving about actual youth talent, and a group from a public school in Staten Island that keeps grabbing my attention: the PS22 Chorus.
They’re infamous for their YouTube videos, and rightfully so. Music is the magnet that holds this school together. These New Yorkerâ€™s sing the hell out of various songs from Lady Gaga, Journey, and even Rihanna. They even hit the studio to record with Passion Pit for their critically acclaimed album Manners. These clips made my heart melt like a popsicle on the fourth of July (yes, Little Rascals throwback).
Everyone starts somewhere, and the PS22 chorus could have our future grammy winners sitting in those auditorium seats. Everyone knows youth is not easy, with fighting, bad grades, and cruel kids; but the good thing about music is, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
Check out one of their singing sessions, and I promise your day will be a little better. Not only your daily dose of kick ass music, but your double-dosage of kick-ass kiddies!
