My 4th appearance at this great little school, and it never disappoints - it's the All Saints Catholic Academy in Albany.  Mrs. Reilly and Mrs. Grimmick kindly allowed me to come in and create a song with these very creative 5th graders.  (And actually, I didn't do much - they handled it very well on their own, thank you very much.

Take a listen to their creation - written and recorded in less than an hour.  This was written right after Martin Luther King Day.  I wish we could have aired this earlier, but hey, there's never a wrong time or day to reinforce the idea that "equal rights and respect for others" is something that should be in our hearts and minds ALWAYS!   Here is their video with lyrics to follow.

EQUAL RIGHTS - Gonna tell you 'bout EQUAL RIGHTS

It's all about equality, no matter what your race

You gotta keep the pace with the obstacles you face

It's all about the teachings of Martin Luther King

He stood at the podium and did his thing

EQUAL RIGHTS - Gonna tell you 'bout EQUAL RIGHTS

It's all about respect and cooperation

You can't have that without communication

We're All Saints singing on this radio station

Equal Rights ---Equal Rights
