John Cariani, the playwright of  Almost, Maine, describes his play as "people falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken.

Anything Worth Holding On To - Revue #9

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Apr 20, 2021 8:00:00 PM

The music of Scott Alan is admired and sung by many Broadway artists. In May of 2014, he released a digital EP entitled   Anything Worth Holding On To. This song covers a lot of issues that some might be experiencing of late that have surfaced because of stress and the uncertainty of so many current situations. Here is a video of   Sarah Bell (Head Girl) and  Lennon Rutledge (Grade 10)  singing their rendition of this emotional piece. I have   attached the lyrics  as well for your consideration.

Enjoy the performance!
