Lights Of Freedom, The
From Plank Road Publishingby Teresa Jennings
The finale from This Is America, the powerful all-school revue featured in Music K-8 magazine, will also provide a dramatic closer to any performance. It can be performed as unison or 2-part, making this a great song for combining various grades or levels of talent. One of the most distinctive aspects is the repeating section that has members of the choir reciting the names of the 50 states in alphabetical order. The creative teaching notes describe several ways of staging this, including having the singers light a new candle or other light with each new state. This leads to an all-out blockbuster ending guaranteed to bring your audience to its feet. Teachers in schools that have used this song already are telling us just how memorable it can be for everyone involved. (from Music K-8, Vol. 13, No. 3)
