“America’s Songwriter” Reaches Out to MEANYC Members

I am a NYC songwriter and music educator. Over the past ten years, I have had the pleasure of working with many of my fellow MEANYC members who have performed my patriotic and inspirational songs with their classes.

I have recently revised my website www.AmericasSongwriter.com to include free vocal recordings, sheet music (including SATB arrangements), lyric sheets, and instrumental tracks (with melody line) for all four of my well- known patriotic songs: "The Spirit of America," "One Heart, One Voice," "Halfway to Heaven (A 9/11 Tribute)," and "The Men Who Built America." These songs have received numerous performances across America, particularly at school assemblies for Veterans Day, Memorial Day, Patriot Day (9/11), and Holiday and Spring Concerts. I have posted many photos of these song performances on my website, as well as videos on my YouTube page, Hank Fellows USA. I have also been honored to receive civic awards for the performance of my patriotic songs from the New York City Council, the Bronx Borough President, and the 9/11 Memorial Committee of Jersey City.

I encourage all MEANYC members to check out my website. In addition to my patriotic songs, I have a broad range of easy-to-learn songs for many occasions, and many songs have free vocal recordings and sheet music available right on my website. For example, "New York City" to celebrate living in The Big Apple, "6,000,000" for Holocaust Remembrance Day (5/2), and my inspirational songs "Take My Hand," "Carry On," and "The Tree of Life" to celebrate friendship, fellowship, and perseverance.

Another facet of my songwriting career is personal appearances. At school assemblies, I engage the students in a discussion of creativity, songwriting, and finding one's own unique voice. I also enjoy performing my own songs for the kids, and answering their questions. (Yes, I have a fluffy little dog named Lenny!).

I look forward to helping my fellow MEANYC members inspire their students through their performance of my patriotic and inspirational songs.
