“You can turn up with the whip
You can turn up with the nae nae
Let me see your footwork
Turn up, turn up!”
-from “Turn up!”
created by students from Henry H. Houston Elementary School
**FLASHBACK!** Back in 2016 LiveConnections created our first album, A DAY IN MY LIFE, in collaboration with Henry H. Houston Elementary School in Philly.
Through poetry and songwriting, students had a chance to share stories of their families, images of their current neighborhoods, concerns about violence in our city, and questions for their future selves.
“Turn Up!” is a high-energy song from the album, featuring a catchy beat, student-created lyrics, and the entire student body of Houston School dancing along.
4 years and 4 albums later, we’re still empowering young people to tell their own stories — and celebrate their lives — through song.
