I'm so glad I watched this. I really hope it goes green.

He's very clever. Have seen him perform in person a few times.

Subby here.  Roy Zimmerman is a modern-day Tom Lehrer.  His songs are funny, thought-provoking, sometimes poignant, but this is the first time he brought me to tears.

I hope this song also brings more exposure to classical/jazz artist Clovice Lewis, who has been composing symphonies since his teens.

Thanks again.
I'd never heard of Clovice Lewis. Listening to and enjoying his latest album now.
/so, exposure: 1 confirmed person :)

This is also parodying (or "homage"ing) the Rhiannon Giddens and YoYo Ma song, Build A House. Both great songs.
