Recorded as a demo (discover me, please!). Based on Josh Groban’s version of the Don McLane original. I sang this for all the 4th graders in art class the year I taught 4th grade in Olathe. The kids then create oil pastel versions of the Van Gogh masterpiece.

From the Way-Back Machine! My aunt took me to one of those in-the-mall “recording studios” sometime around my 8th grade summer. Note the funky pink collar.

Waaay before the dc Talk remake, but well after the Bill Withers original. My buddy David McCranie would play the opening piano chords every day before choir class started. Club Nouveau was tha shizzle!
