    Default performing "Hello Goodbye" at my granddaughter's preschool

    I don't usually do live performances, but when my granddaughter's preschool teacher asked me if I could play the ukulele at their special "Hawaii" event, I simply couldn't refuse. My granddaughter goes to a bilingual preschool here in Japan, and they had been learning the Beatles' song, "Hello Goodbye," so that was the first song I did. You can hear the kids singing along. This was fun!

    As I said to this on YT earlier today John, this is BRILLIANT with a capital B !
    If only ALL ‘audiences’ were as cooperative and enthusiastic as these youngsters were!
    A great job mate. The kids obviously loved it - as did I. It put a huge grin on my face at what is proving to be a difficult time for me. Keep ‘em coming buddy - you do a great job entertaining us all. X
    Luv n stuff, Dave

    Thanks, Bill! Thanks, Dave! It was a fun experience and I hope some of the children become interested in playing the ukulele.

    Wow you must be the most popular grand pa
    You are such a great entertainer.
    I remember you did a story book video once. Did you receive the same audience response ?
    The children seemed to enjoy your performance as much as we do here on UU !

    Thanks, Brenda! Thanks, apdsqueaky! The teacher asked me my name before I started and I replied, "Lulu's Grampa," so they at least know I'm a grampa! My storybook video was more for my college students. Not quite the same audience response, but we did have a nice discussion afterwards about "what happens next" when we die!

    I'll be honest - I was a little surprised at the number of people singing along - especially the kids! The Beatles really do transcend time and distance.

    It's great to know that Beatles music will continue to be appreciated with this young generation!
