Our version, performed by the Children’s Choir of Fort Greene, is a song by kids, for kids. Any resemblance to “Lord Of The Flies” is just a manifestation of your imagination.
Precocious. Angelic. Possessed. Beautiful. Talented. Enthusiastic.
These are just some of the adjectives thrown at the nine youngsters of the Fort Greene Children’s Choir.
Lead vocals are tackled by the killer combination of Miss Isabella Serrano (7) and Master Julius Philp (7). Isabella has been singing in commercials since she was four, and her gap-toothed smile make her a favorite with the judges. Julius has a serious stage presence, and a stunning similarity to a young John Lennon. He sleeps under a Beatles poster.
They are ably supported in a fortissimo chorus by Master Luke Serrano (5), Master Vincent Philp (4), Miss Asara Milton (7), Master Citizen Milton (4), Miss Delia Costello (5), Miss Alina Bennet-Dubin (7), Miss Maya McGuire (6) & Miss Lola McGuire (4)
