This song is stuck in my head. I have two song selections for the fifth grade promotional ceremony: “Can’t Give Up Now” by Mary Mary with the class singing the chorus and a duet with a student and her teacher. Also, the choral piece, “We Are the Young” by Mary Donnelly, arranged by George Strid.
They’re both great pieces and completely different, which is good. But the gospel song is on my mind. Can’t stop singing it in my head. Speaks to me and a lot of the kids, especially during these tough times with testing, and other things…It makes me cry and there were more than a few tears when the students heard the piece…boys (one of the toughest in my classes) and girls alike.
