We always program a song that the kids are gonna know the words to. This year we played the song "How Far I'll Go" from Disney's Moana which is very popular with the kiddos. And it is so powerful to hear 300 young people singing in unison. It is just this immense sound coming back at us as we're playing these pieces that they're singing along to. I remember in one school, a teacher coming up to me and she was in tears because of this powerful sound of the kids singing to this song. Tim Bradley
