This touching song inspires students to feel more kindness and empathy towards others. It also inspires deeper friendships and true loyalty. Special is one of our most popular songs of all time. Discovered on a student's computer "favorites" playlist, this magical song became a grass roots hits at Brown University.
Special is a gorgeous and touching choice for choir performances. It is simple to pull off with just a piano and any group of young people - fourth grade through high school. It has been my own choir's favorite performance song.
With this license, your students can now take this beautiful studio recording home as a meaningful reward
for exceptionally thoughtful behavior in class! Students can also take it home to practice ahead
for singing in class and all Special performances.
Sweet note: Lyrics to Special encourage students to behave with empathy. As lyrics soak in, so does a caring attitude. Win - win!

About Special: The thumbnail photo is actually a photo of some of our students singing Special on an ABC Unity Telethon. The producer of the program confessed to me afterwards: "I have been producing this show for seventeen years. This is the first time I have ever stopped what I was doing to actually watch a musical act! That song is mesmerizing..."
We have discovered - along our own teaching path - that Special is a very Special song. It seems to speak to everyone. We're sure it will speak to your own crew of lovely songbirds.
