‘The First Noel’ by Leslie Odom Jr. and PS22 is one of my new favourites

I love that Christmas carols are for everyone, that it brings people together regardless of faith, that, when done beautifully like this, it sings to my soul. This brings up all the #christmasfeels, it’s definitely going down as one of my favourites. Whether or not you celebrate, may your Christmas / holiday season be filled with the things that matter most – family, friends, love.

‘Don’t You Worry Child’ by PS22 Chorus and Ithacappella

My love for PS22 Chorus has a lot to do with good music, but even more to do with passion (from them) and hope (for me). The way the kids move and sing, the way their voices come together – it always moves me.

Chorus director Gregg “Mr. B” Breinberg inspires me to want to make a difference in my own little circle because he is proof that, with talent, hard work and dedication, I can. That’s the “what” of it. The “how” I have yet to figure out.

I love how these kids are getting the opportunity and mentoring of a lifetime with Mr. B, and I can only hope and pray that my kid should be so lucky to find her own versions of “PS22” as she grows up.
