A very special END to the OSCARS for me ~

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Sunset Beach and Beyond Realty

The End of the Oscars this year was very special for me thanks to my wonderful husband, Frank.  I didn't stay up to watch it in it's entirety but Frank, as usual set it up on the TiVo to tape. This year the show ended with a chorus from P.S. 22 of Staten Island singing my ultimate favorite song, "Somewhere Over The Rainbow"

The harmonizing of the group of children is amazing and the nuances of the group caught my attention immediately. For me it was a wonderful way to end the Oscars with all the winners walking out while this talented group of children sang my favorite song.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Oh, by the way, I grew up on Staten Island in Eltingville but did not go to this school. I went to P.S. 55.

Hi Karen - I enjoyed this ending, too. The kids were just priceless. And, since NYC was originally my hometown, I felt a bit of pride that this group was chosen.

Karen & Frank;  Thanks so much for this video.  I guess Staten Island is really on the map now.

Eltingville is a great place to live.  Why did you ever leave?  BTW, you are always welcome back.

Hi Ken ~ Growing up on Staten Island was filled with wonderful memories ~ The decision to relocate to the coastal area of North Carolina was one that was based on affordability and living less than a mile to the most beautiful beaches in North Carolina, Sunset Beach.

Hi Karen & Frank, This was a nice touch at the end of the awards show. I saw Oprah the next day when she had them appear again on her show from the Kodak theatre..so a double treat!
