Fifth graders re-do Phoenix

What were you singing in fifth grade chorus class? Well, the fifth grade chorus from PS22 on Staten Island sings a range of popular songs, including some by Lady Gaga, Journey,  Coldplay, and more. Their most recent video on Youtube is a rendition of Phoneix’s hit song “Lisztomania.”

Man. I mean I enjoyed singing songs from Disney’s The Lion King when I was in fifth grade, but I kind of feel like I missed out now. The chorus is directed by Gregg Breinberg.  As of February, the group’s vidoes had over 13,000,000 views on Youtube. Apparently, Passion Pit also had the chorus sing backing vocals on three of the tracks from their debut album, Manners. Quite impressive for a group of ten and eleven year-olds.
