Next Monday (March 7th) and Tuesday (March 8th) from 7:20 to 7:55 you can come to the music room and audition for one of the statue raps. There are three statue rap parts available. Please plan to read this Lincoln Statue Rap for your audition. It does not need to be memorized. These three statue raps will be included as part of our April performance (TBA) of "A Walk With Giants" when the author, Krista August visits Everett School.
Lincoln Statue Rap
(A house divided against itself cannot stand)
I claimed victory in 1860
Serving two terms I navigated us through war
Born in a cabin in the Bluegrass State
People refer to me as “Honest Abe”
Standing 6’4” as the 16th President
I believed in equality for all
The Union stood strong as the nation wept
At Ford’s Theater where I took my fall
