V V Brown Teams Up With PS22 for New Performances
The acclaimed children’s choir at PS22 have given their unique spin on a massive catalog of pop favorites, and teamed up with superstars like Katy Perry and Kylie Minogue for live performances — and now they can add another star to their list of collaborators: British pop act V V Brown.
Brown, who achieved minor stateside success in 2009 with her infectious pop single ‘Shark in the Water,’ lent her considerable vocal prowess to the kids of PS22, covering that single (from her 2009 album ‘Travelling Like the Light’) as well as some more recent material. Brown’s latest single, ‘Children,’ which features Chiddy Bang, was a fitting track to get the PS22 take — and they also took the opportunity to perform Brown’s new track, ‘Famous,’ an as-yet-unheard song from her upcoming LP, ‘Lollipops and Politics.’
As with all of PS22’s performances, these are heartwarming — but seeing Brown’s obvious joy and good-spirited sentiment about teaming up with the kids, and how well her doo-wop pop sounds gets appropriated by the PS22 sound, makes it an unusually fun treat.
