Young & Savvy Sistah : Denise Bestman from PS22 School Chorus to Target Commercial!

If you don’t know the name Denise Bestman, I’m pretty sure you’re familiar with the face and the voice of this 11 year old sensation. During the Grammy Awards this year Denise was featured in a commercial for Target singing a rendition of Grammy Award winner Adele’s hit song “Rolling in the Deep”. When I saw her on the bus singing her heart out, I immediately had a flash back of Tyrese singing about Coca Cola back in 1993.

Although I liked the Target commercial, I really enjoyed watching her sing with her choir, the Public School 22 in Staten Island. (PS22). The children in this choir are so talented, I can see why they have over 42 million views on YouTube, been highlighted on the Oprah Show, performed at the Academy Awards (2011) and have a new documentary debuting soon on the choir called ‘Once in a Lullaby.’ It’s so rewarding to see dedicated teachers who care and support our children…thank you Gregg Breinberg aka Mr. B.

Listen to Denise sing Adele’s ‘Rolling in the Deep’ at school and for the Target Commercial.
