Backstory: Discovered on a student's "fav songs" computer playlist, our song "Special" became a grass root hit at Brown University. It has a rich history of speaking to all ages. It was penned organically to resolve a mean girl situation.
Vocalists on this music track include Jessie Bridges (dad is actor, Jeff) and Viva Gore, 14, Viva's dad is in the English band "Depeche Mode." The background chorus is made up of parents as well as our giant tween and teen singing crew. It was our choirs favorite song to sing of all time.
