…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!
