HARLEM, BROADWAY, AND THE ABQ
The overall reasoning for this undertaking began after the frustration of not finding appropriated Tony-nominated Musical Theatre examples for elementary-age children during Career Day. Most of the Tony performances that had a lot to learn from were unsuitable for children of that age and Career Day would have ended with quite a few phone calls from parents. There was definitely room, even if it was just one song, for a song in a musical theatre style that was positive and uplifting for children. Soon, the intent was to create a lyrically positive and musically interesting song and commission it for an after school music program I was a part of in Albuquerque. I would work with my former supervisor, Alexis Corbin, and discuss the lyrics and overall concept of the song.
