Did you grab more than your share of discount candy? Well, we want to know what you did this Valentine’s Day. Our friends from ART Center have created a song to the tune of “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” to find out just that!
"I bought you flowers that grew from the sun
I got you chocolate kisses to enjoy
It might be a long shot, but I need to know
I went ahead and bought you a card

Valentine’s Day is almost here, and love is in the air at Able ARTS Work. What’s the best way to celebrate this holiday? You guessed it: DANCE (or maybe some candy)! Here are some picks from our friend, DJ PJ, that are sure to get the crowd grooving!
"La Bicicleta" by Shakira and Carlos Vives
To finish, we slow things down a bit with duet with our friend, Jesse Cantlay, singing Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud.”
Happy Valentine’s Day!Digital Discoveries!
January 31, 2018 01:23 PM PST
Hello everybody! You are in for a treat. Our friends from CECA have created an awesome composition. The song came out of the class named “Digital Discoveries” which uses technology to record. We were memorizing and learning to spell the class name, and the song gradually came to existence as we were continuously repeating the phrase "Di-gi-tal Dis-co-ve-ries." We just hit “record” and rest is history! All the sounds that the artists made were on the spot without any prompting or rehearsal. The song was recorded in one take, and artists helped to choose the filter for the sound. Enjoy!DJ PJ Flashlight Playlist 02: Christmas Party Playlist
