Every Friday on this blog is “Fangirl Friday,” where I post about a person/people who have made a REAL impact on the world and made it a brighter place to live. This week the story is about the young choir from Staten Island, NY who sang to their teacher who was recently diagnosed with cancer.
The young 5th grade choir sang “I’m Gonna Love you Through It,” by Martina McBride to their teacher battling cancer, Adriana Lopez. In the video below, Lopez was overwhelmed with tears as the choir sang to her, and stated, “It’s not easy, but I will get through it because I have wonderful friends at this school.” Friends and students alike.
Lopez, the entire choir, and Gregg Breinberg, the choir director, we’re all featured on the Ellen DeGeneras show as well after the choir performance received over 1 million views on YouTube. Martina McBride even sang with the choir during the Ellen DeGeneras show.
Breinberg stated that the students were, “so inspired by your fighting spirit” (in reference to Lopez) and that is what inspired them to sing that song. that they decided to sing her the song.
Remember, it’s the little things in life. Everyone has the power to change someone else’s life. Take a look around you at your fellow man and see who YOU can lift up TODAY!
