Need a high powered, driving beat song to bring the house down as an opener or closer? This is a SUPER piece of music!
The message is . . . even though we are individuals and step to the beat of a different drum, we can still work together to make the world a better place. It promotes unity, harmony, diversity, peace, changing the world. This song makes an impact whether it is sung simply or if a production number is created using all kinds of drums. Afew drum types are suggested, but anthing you have on hand can be uaed, even hand claps or other body percussion.

Excellent for middle school, high school and beyond. Great for adult choirs as well.
Written in a key which can be used for SSA, TTB (lower the octaves as necessary), or mixed voices.
Opportunity to teach accented notes
Drum parts are included in score, however, the last page is the individual drumming score for practice or performance.
The verse is semi-contemporary and can be used as as solo, then the chorus wows the audience with the rhythm of the lyrics and drums
Easy, repetitive lyrics
Contemporary harmonies
Chords included for additional instruments, if desired
