I can NOT stop watching this!!!

My buddy Leslie posted this on her blog today, and I watched it three times before I stole it to post here. I have this bizarre condition that causes me to blubber like a big baby every single time I watch kids performing. ANY kids! My kid (although then it's REALLY bad, more like snot-filled sobbing...), my nieces, my students, kids at the Hell-Hole, kids I've never laid eyes on (like in this case), ANY kids. Then add to that a totally AWESOME performance, and I need to change my tear-stained shirt. Enjoy!

Ok, so I found this one, too, on Schooltube. It's the acapella version. How many of these little stars do you think will soon be on American Idol? Especially the little soloist!

OMG. OMG. OMG. Gave me the chills. Those kids are SO talented! As a Coldplay LOVER, I LOOOOOOVE it, but they are really, really amazing, and so cute. If the guitarist is the music teacher... well, I would have paid a lot of attention in music class is he were my music teacher. That little girl sining the solo... breathtaking. Thanks for sharing!

I'd never heard of "schooltube"'s interesting. And yes, the video is worth watching three times (or four or five). Glad you like it!!
