ADDING A BRANCH OR TWO, TO THE FAMILY TREE

July 21, 2015 0 Comments AUTHOR: Benny CATEGORIES: Kids Talk, Original Videos, Parent Stuff

As a pre-school teacher you’re often privy to some pretty unique conversations

One particularly enlightening conversation I found myself in was with some of my 4 year olds as they discussed families, or more importantly, what made up a family.

A spark was lit and the “Family Song” was conceived.

I put out a request to friends, fans and family:  ‘Please film your family with your mobile phone and send me the clip’.

Many months later, and with the help of many people, a music video clip was compiled from family footage from all four corners of the globe.

Its about everything I could of hoped it would be, and what’s better, I think we’ve all done a good job representing those kids who may sometimes have to look a little wider to find representation.

And to be totally honest (if I have to) it was sort of the point of the song in the first place.

So please take a moment to sit down with your family and enjoy the fruits of many peoples labour.

From Freetown to London, New York to Redfern … this is “The Family Song” … hope you dig it.
