I co-wrote this piece with the students at Huntley Elementary School in Appleton, WI, during my recent Artist Residency there.
After brainstorming music and lyric concepts to speak into the city-wide Dignity and Respect campaign that’s currently underway, this is the song we created.
From first idea to completion, I worked with every single class to finish our piece in just four school days. It was so much fun to write with the eager, bright young people at Huntley Elementary School.
I recorded the students’ voices (heard here) during the final assembly and WORLD DEBUT of the song, then brought those tracks to my studio in TN, where I recorded the rest of the arrangement. Thank you for liking, and sharing! Appleton, Wisconsin Dignity and Respect Campaign #dignity #respect #dignityandrespectcampaign
