There is seldom a song these days that truly lets the listener focus on the words as much as the sound. That’s where this amazing choir comes in.
“Say Something” covered by elementary school chorus PS22 Chorus. In this video, the song was a welcoming gift to the popular girl group ‘Fifth Harmony’ (who unfortunately is on an indefinite hiatus) who just happened to be visiting the school.
What Is “Say Something” About?
“Say Something” is a song that talks about the breakup between two people. The singer is the one asking their lover to ‘say something’ because there giving up. The singer is experiencing sadness, regret, and humility about the situation.
The song was composed by American pop duo by the name of A Great Big World who collaborated along with renowned singer Christina Aguilera. The song was excellently received because of its soothing composition, very moving lyrics, as well as Aguilera’s delivery. In fact, the song did so well that it won a Grammy award for ‘Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.’
Apparently, there was another version of the song that didn’t feature Aguilera and because of that, the song really didn’t do well with just A Great Big World (AGBW) attached to it. Perhaps it was the superior name value and recognition of Aguilera that allowed the song to be so globally received, which is pretty unfair considering AGBW is the one that wrote and composed the song.
Who Are the ‘A Great Big World’?
While someone has revered as Christina Aguilera is above any introductions, it wouldn’t be fair to not give ‘A Great Big World’ their fair share of the praise. As a matter of fact, it is AGBW that composed and wrote the song with Christina Aguilera providing the guest vocals for it. In spite of this, the only reason people remember the song more was that Aguilera was attached to it and not more so AGBW. Although it’s unfair, it wouldn’t be hard to see why that’s the case.
“Say Something” was AGBW’s great international hit.
What about Fifth Harmony?
Popular American girl group Fifth Harmony were special guests attending elementary school PS 22’s school chorus, possibly giving their young fans a visit to observe their vocal abilities. Unfortunately, the group went on an indefinite hiatus back in May 2018 so that each of the members would go on their solo pursuits. Well wherever they are now, God help them with their success.
What Is the PS 22 Chorus?
The ones performing this cover version of “Say Something” is the PS 22 Chorus from the elementary school of PS 22 based in Grantville, Staten Island, New York City. PS 22 is the largest Staten Island elementary school where the students have performed with several other musical artists and talents such as Carrie Underwood, Portugal. The Man, Kathy Perry, and Fifth Harmony.
As for the Performance…
Apparently, the school chorus had arranged a special event attended by the popular girl group Fifth Harmony to celebrate one of the chorus member’s birthday, who had the honor of singing the opening lyrics to the song “Say Something“.
Given that the kids are young, with the effort they put into the song, it is quite remarkable how they all stay in harmony all the way. And no matter what is written here, nothing can do the song justice then being able to watch and listen to the video with your own eyes and ears.
