•  Willem and  I  have  decieded  to write  a slave song about what a slave could need That's why we named it "I need"

                                                              I  Need 


    I need to go to the promised land

    And only God can take my hand 

    I need to take the freedom train

    And forget all my pain

    Sometimes when everything is gone

    And  I feel alone

    I need God cause I show my time isn't long

    Take the station master

    Try to go higher

    Follow Moses 

    Like the Canaan people

    Too strong and too long 



     The wind came from the south today

    And I want to go home

    It's gonna be a brighter day

    I feel it in my blood and my bone

    Take me out of Eggypt, it's just what I need 

    Deliver me of the pharaoh, I swear that I need it 


    I got a question for you, and I really need need an answer

    When Moses will he come ?(oh)

    To get me to my home(oh)

    The dead trees will show the  way

    And now I cry 

    It's Jesus that i supply

    The shockholder is the man

    That will help me 

    To take the Gospel train

  • Hello everybody ! Today we sang a freedom song for our final task. It's about the slavery subject and in our song, we explain the metaphor of a little boy who is beaten by his father and he begs his mother to save him. We hope you like it and don't forget to read the song with the instrumental (Click here !)

    Please, hear me !

     Mother, mother

    Please, come back to me

    Since you're gone, Father beats me

    Mother, mother

    Please, please save me !

    He stuck me in a room with all the family

    And he says that I will never leave.

    Mother, mother

    Please, please hear me !

    Take me away from him

    We have nothing to eat 

    Oh ! Mother, mother !

    If you can't do this...

    Please, kill me.

    And I hope in heaven, we'll be all together happy...


    Mother -> Harriet Tubman

    Father -> Slaves owners

    Stuck me in a room -> In the fields

    All the family -> All slaves

    Watch the trailer undubbed


    Feel the slavery experience:

    As part of the english class sequence on the human reality of slavery, the english teachers decided to organise a school outing at the ciné 7 to watch a very moving film: ''Twelve years a slave'' by Steve Mc Queen. This film takes us into a total slavery immersion, through the character of Solomon Northup, a free black man who was living happily with his family when he was kidnapped and sold as a georgian slave. We followed him during the worst years of his life, during which he will be compared to a beast, exposed to harsh punishment and humiliations, injustices, betrayals and denouncements. We can almost say that we are living this events with him, because the movie director decided to take no prisonners with this film and to deliver the real truth about slavery, so this film gives the impression to feel what the character feels. Furthermore, and I may say "unfortunately", this film is very hard to watch because they are some very violent beating scenes which can shake people who are sensitive.But something very important that people must know about this film is that it is based on a true story and I promise you that it's a very good adaptation of Solomon Nothup book's. So now, let's talk about the characters and the actors who played them : 


    First ,let's talk about the incredible performance of Michael Fassbender as a slave owner , he was truly vicious and really convincing in this role and also his wife in the movie played by Sarah Paulson: she played the role of a horrible character who was mistreating her slaves. Both her and her husband  formed a really powerful couple of slave owners. Then comes the heroes of this movie : Chiwetel Eijiofor who played the role of Solomon Northup; he was really convincing and touching  as a free man who was kidnapped and turned into a slave. He played the most violent beating scenes and showed the reality of slaves. I think that he completely succeeded in paying tribute to Solomon Northup.  He incarnates this character perfectly.

    And Finally let's talk about Lupita Nyong'o , this young actress who just came out of the Yale Theater University and who never played in a movie before : she embodies perfectly the character of Patsey , a young slave lady who was abused by the slave owner and beaten by the wife of the slave owner because of jealousy , she was touching , moving,heartbreaking and really talented, which is why  her name shouldn't be forgotten.

    I'm pretty sure that's just the beginning of her long future career. To conclude, I recommend this film to everybody even if there are some violents scenes, because it is a real revelation, a touching film that makes us understand what the life of a slave  was by the perfect example of a man who fought all his unslaving period to keep believing in freedom.

  • On the 5th of May took place the Young Talent Night

    During this time a lot of student shared their talent. It was really intersting. When I sang my song with Laurane I felt something I  never felt before. Singing in front of that much person was scared at first sight but then I let it go and honestly it was so much fun.

    My favorite performance was when Sarah sang Tourner dans le vide by Indila. Her voice is


    This night was one of the best I've ever been to.

    I truly hope everybody liked it

    Congratulations to everybody that sang this night
