This story is heartwarming to me as I’ve been seeing how…
…an elementary choir sang a tribute song to their teacher!
It was just a regular old day at Public School 22 in Staten Island, NY until students broke into a song that they were dedicating to their teacher. What was the song you might ask?
Martina McBride’s “I’m Gonna Love You Through It”
The teacher that was chosen to have a special song performed for by the school’s choir was Adriana Lopez who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.
Every year at the elementary school a lucky teacher is chosen to have a special song sung to them and this year it was Adriana’s turn.
Take a look at that special performance here:
After a tear-filled moment, Lopez said: “It’s not easy but I will get through it because I have wonderful friends at this school.”
Boy, I’ll say! What an amazing group of kids! They sounded so good together 😀
Martina herself gave a shout-out on Twitter:
The video went viral and has over 1 million views!
I’m sorry for an afternoon cry session, but all I’m trying to say here is that music is powerful AND healing 🙂
Thank you Martina McBride for the powerful message of this song in which it depicts the struggle of people battling terminal illnesses such as cancer. It’s a lovely depiction of how they aren’t alone in the fight as we will love them through it.
Here’s to Adriana and let’s hear it for these talented kids!
