WEST LOS ANGELES CHILDREN'S CHOIR RECORDS WITH FRANK OCEAN!

West Los Angeles Children's Choir - Frank Ocean Kids The WLA Children's Choir - Frank Ocean Kids Video

Frank Ocean featured 17 members of the West Los Angeles Children's Choir when he collaborated with The Clash and Diplo on the song HERO. This was part of the Converse 'Three Artists, One Song' series and you can hear the results right now!

NYC Live: We live strange times, times that see the Stooges recording with the likes of Ariel Pink instead of Iggy Pop and times that see a collaboration between Frank Ocean, The Clash (Paul Simonon, Mick Jones) and Diplo! Talk about strangeness.It is actually part of Converse's Three Artists, One Song series, and the song is called 'Hero'. It starts like a doo-wop oldies with Ocean's soulful voice and the Clash' s reverb jam guitars, then a lot is going on, more layers are added, and if it's difficult to know who is exactly responsible of what, Diplo has certainly sprinkled the track with electronic tidbits. But the surprise is this children's choir (the West Los Angeles Children's Choir to be exact) which suddenly explodes and opens up the song to another dimension, wrapping Ocean's croon.

We Were mentioned in BILLBOARD MAGAZINE!!

Here is the Billboard review of Train's new hit "You Can Finally Meet My Mom":

"Au courant whistle? Check. Piano line that echoes Train's 2001 smash "Drops of Jupiter?" Check. Then load in more pop culture references, from Jimi Hendrix and "Blazing Saddles" to Etta James, Bob Marley... and Sitting Bull. Now set it all to another wistful tune that swells into a string-filled finish complete with the West Los Angeles Children's Choir."

Los Angeles Children's Choir with Youngblood Hawke

L.A. Buzz Bands Show, tonight at 7 on KCSN
JULY 31, 2012

Then this week Youngblood Hawke sent to radio the new single “We Come Running” (officially out Aug. 14), and again the fivesome has shown its skills at grabbing hold of the pop jugular vein. The song's secret weapon is the West Los Angeles Children's Choir, and if those cherubic voices sound familiar, it's with good reason. They also did background on arguably the biggest pop anthem of 2012, Fun's “We Are Young.”
