"I Can Be What I Wanna Be"

We thank Dave Berg for sharing his musical talents and our Jefferson poet-athletes for sharing their creative voice this week! See above for a video clip of Dave and the students making music together yesterday at Jefferson Elementary, and see below for a sneak peek at some of the original lyrics Dave wrote based on their poetry! Tonight, Dave will record their original song with our poet-athletes at Shock City Studios. Stay tuned for some inspired music!

I left Nashville in the eve driving all night long

Heading up to St. Louis to write a song

With some kids at a school but what I didn’t know

They may have been kids but they were also poets

Sayin’ things like…..

I can be what I wanna be

I can be what I wanna be

I am smart

I am funny

And I have dreams

I can be what I wanna be

(they’ll get no argument from me)
