Lift Every Voice and Sing (Free Music Download)
Lift Every Voice and Sing is an African-American anthem of Freedom originally penned as a poem by James Weldon Johnson.
Introduce the song by singing one of the verses for you students.
Use call and response to teach the first verse
when the students have become familiar with the melody teach them the other verses or let them attempt to learn them on their own.
Once your students are familiar with the melody and can sing acapella or accompanied by a single instrument add the GrooveTrack.
Use lower volumes so the students can hear themselves and slightly louder volumes as they become confident in their singing
