PS22 Chorus Sings “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac

New York City PS22 elementary school chorus singing "Landslide" by Fleetwood Mac.

In a school where more than three quarters of the students are eligible for free lunch, the lyrics of the song have resonance, and the performance is haunting, emotive, and delivered with far more soul than one might expect from a bunch of fifth-graders. As Breinberg plays, he makes eye contact with the kids, coaxing performances from them and letting them enjoy themselves. Later, Davoya, one of the chorus members, explains how he does it. "At first, when I sang, I had no emotion," she says. "I didn't move. But Mr. B taught me to sing with feeling. With feeling and heart."

Best of all Stevie likes it! YouTube link.
