This classic song, was written by Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse for the 1965 musical The Roar of the Greasepaint. The famous version by Nina Simone moves it away from the musical genre and into blues. It is a great song for young voices because of the inspiring words, and it can be taken apart and improvised over. See some impro ideas here from Jilly Jarman.
Suitable for Key Stage 2, 3 and adult.
