VIRTUALLY SINGING TOGETHER: QUEENS CATHOLIC SCHOOL THIRD GRADERS SING “THAT’S WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR”
The Diocese of Brooklyn this afternoon is releasing a video of the third-grade students at St. Kevin’s Catholic Academy in Flushing, who created a musical collage of 19 students, recorded virtually and individually, singing the words to the classic song “That’s What Friends Are For.”
The idea for the video was suggested by one of the students featured in the video. The student thought recording this project would help the class overcome the loneliness classmates are feeling by not being together at school due to the Coronavirus.
The project was organized by teacher Kristen D’Alimonte. St. Kevin’s Catholic Academy is located at 45-50 195th Street in the Flushing section of Queens.
