Ten In Three is his initiative to persuade groups of friends to contribute USD 10,000 in just three hours, to be put towards the construction of a new school in a disadvantaged area. Amazing and inspiring idea!

This Staten Island School Choir PS22 really rocks. You see 5th grader from a public elementary school here. Everybody remembers their version of “Viva La Diva” from Coldplay or Lady Gaga’s “Just Dance”. These kids are amazing. Their passion for music and performance is outstanding. I wish I had a teacher like Gregg Breinberg. He does a tremendous job. And this one here is probably one of the most beautiful things you’ll ever hear. The chorus covers the Christmas traditional, “Let There Be Peace On Earth”. Log on to their blog here or go to their youtube channel. Happy Holidays everybody!
