You should already know that those of us at PopWreckoning love a good cover song. Now, usually we spotlight other indie acts covering fellow today we want to give special attention to a group delivering great cover after great cover: The PS22 Chorus.
If you’re unfamiliar with the PS22 Chorus, it is an elementary school chorus from Public School 22 in Graniteville, Staten Island (New York). Director Gregg Breinberg formed the group of 60-70 fifth graders and blogs about their experiences and covers here. Since their formation, they’ve received attention from artists such as Matisyahu and Tori Amos, as well as television attention. They’ve even performed for President Obama. Perhaps you remember hearing their vocals on Passion Pit‘s debut album Manners?
Though the group has already exploded on the interwebs and you might already be aware of them, we wanted to share of few of their covers of some of PopWreckoning’s favorite artists.
The group’s latest cover of Marina and the Diamonds‘ “I Am Not a Robot.”
Beach House‘s “Zebra”
Lady GaGa‘s “Just Dance”
