Happy to finally get back to business with the chorus yesterday after not seeing them for two weeks in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. I thought this song, "Chasing The Sun" by The Wanted was the perfect choice with which to begin again after our unwanted hiatus. Thanks to chorus members Jianna and Dorian for their help in teaching it to the group. (As I had only heard the song a couple of times prior to the rehearsal, the kids knew it way better than I did) Love the harmonies on this one, and Dorian sounds phenomenal on the solo!
To echo the sentiments expressed in the video, many thanks to all of you who were checking up on the PS22 Chorus after Hurricane Sandy hit, via comments on the videos, tweets, Facebook messages, and e-mails. It really means a lot to us to know that we are in your thoughts during this difficult time for Staten Island and our surrounding areas.
UPDATE (11-11-12): Thanks to Perez Hilton for posting PS22's "Chasing The Sun" cover on his blog with some extremely kind words! The kids also got props from Thomas Parker of The Wanted who exclaimed, "so good!" on his Twitter page!
