Now in theaters, the new reinvention of the original Oscar-winning hit film Fame is delighting audiences across the country. The movie follows a talented group of dancers, singers, actors and artists over four years at the New York City High School of Performing Arts. If you’re looking to explore the inspiring music from the film, check out these great choral arrangements:
The memorable and moving power ballad Out Here On My Own captures the energy and drive of the young students in the film.
George Gershwin’s classic song Someone to Watch Over Me is given a purely choral approach in this arrangement, and includes the poignant verse which introduces the song’s beautifully melodic chorus.
Opening with an optional soprano solo, You Made Me Love You is arranged in an easy, light swing style. With its logical voice-leading and a full choral sound, this arrangement can be sung by any size group.
And of course, the title song Fame is an iconic expression of the passion of young performers. This fresh new arrangement will continue to inspire performers of any age!
