PS22 Chorus VIVA LA VIDA by Coldplay acoustic guitar version

The PS22 Chorus of 2009 has some fun with Coldplay’s Grammy nominated song Viva La Vida, the amazing new hit single from the album of the same name. Hope it sweeps the Grammies! I love watching them sing this one, and it has kind of a different sound and feel on the guitar than the previously posted piano and acapella versions, so I thought it merited YouTubeage…. :)

April sings the solo and sounds better than ever on this one.

The PS22 Chorus consists of about 60 fifth graders and have sung with Tori Amos, Crowded House, among many others. Visit our above website to find out more about these amazing New York City public school kids.

Coldplay’s new album comes highly recommended, featuring the songs:

01 Life in Technicolor
02 Cemeteries of London
03 Lost!
04 42
05 Lovers in Japan/Reign of Love
06 Yes
07 Viva la Vida
08 Violet Hill
09 Strawberry Swing
10 Death and All His Friends

Duration : 0:3:9

    We were so inspired by the PS22 choir that we performed it as a choir today in a local Performing Arts Festival. It was so well received and the kids were so proud of themselves. Thank you so much for being role-models and an inspiration to others!
