Sara Bareiles Radio

65 fifth graders from Public School 22 in Staten Island, N.Y. have made a name for themselves through their joyful covers of many of pop music’s biggest hits. In a year-end highlight reel (never before seen), the children’s choir performs a clip of Sara Bareilles‘ “Brave” right in front of the superstar singer-songwriter.

Backstage at an event earlier this year, PS22 delivers an “amazing” cover of the Grammy nominated-song, lifted from Bareilles’ 2013 The Blessed Unrest. Also, there’s a bonus appearance by Whoopi Goldberg.

PS22, led by Gregg Breinberg, have performed a slew of covers (with the original artists) over the years. Those artists include Carrie UnderwoodA Great Big Worldfun.‘s Jack Antonoff, Fifth HarmonyDaughtry, The Walking Dead‘s Emily Kinney and Gavin DeGraw, among others.
