About This Lesson

The inspirational and patriotic songs of Hank Fellows, "America's Songwriter", have been performed hundreds of times across America over the last fifteen years. Hank Fellows wrote his song "6,000,000" in 2006, as a reflection on The Holocaust and more recent examples of genocide. The first public performance of "6,000,000" took place at the New Jersey State House on April 30, 2006, as part of New Jersey's commemoration of Holocaust Remembrance Day. This song has been performed numerous times across America under the auspices of the Anti-Defamation League, the New Jersey Commission on Holocaust Education, The March of the Living, Kean University, Rutgers University, and The March of Remembrance, as well as by schools, churches, and synagogues.

This video features sixteen audience-friendly photographs, as well as a beautiful vocal performance by Ashton Byrum, who originally performed "6,000,000" at the New Jersey State House in 2006. A five-page Teacher's Guide (including lyric sheet) for use with this song is also included in this video, as is the 2006 Ceremony Program. In addition, the Young Voice and Choral Arrangements for "6,000,000", which may be performed without charge, are included in this video. Additional video performances of "6,000,000" may be viewed on Hank's You Tube channel, Hank Fellows USA.

At Holocaust Education and Remembrance programs, Hank's song "6,000,000" may be paired with one or more of Hank's other inspirational and patriotic songs, such as "The Tree of Life", "The Spirit of America", "Take My Hand", and "One Star" to provide a musical context for the program. All of these songs may be listened to on Hank's website

Please visit the "More Songs" page of Hank's website for high-resolution copies of the Young Voice and Choral Arrangements for "6,000,000", as well as an instrumental track (with melody line) for children's live performances of this song. Listen to many of Hank's inspirational and patriotic songs on his website. All of Hank's songs are provided free of charge to schools, churches, synagogues, and civic organizations.
