Where has this song been my whole life?! I absolutely love this song and the message! I am downloading more of her music at this very moment!
I have to give credit to the World Music Drumming Curriculum for highlighting this song. If you are familiar with this curriculum, this song fits incredibly well with some of the arrangements.
I used this song with the curriculum and my students loved it and then asked to learn the words. I quickly printed out the lyrics and I had a few exclamations of "this is the best song ever!". Still thinking on the fly I had them write a quick response as to why they liked it and the personal reflections and connections they made with this song were incredible!
There are so many ideas about how to use this song it's too much to list so hopefully this song get the creative juices flowing. It's the same simple outline as always with animations for each line to go with the pace of the song.
**Be on the look-out for an update or two as I work out the timing and how best to fit in some of the background vocals**
