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 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
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
~Willem & Laurane

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 !
Please, come back to me
Since you're gone, Father beats me
Please, please save me !
He stuck me in a room with all the family
And he says that I will never leave.
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

We had to write a slave song mine's about leaving plantation and the way slaves were mistreated by their masters
Put your shovels to the side
Imma make you feel alright
cause we're going to Egypt, yeah
Nigger join me to the station
It's time for you so action !
If you want to be free
It's time to follow me !
Uh ! My life is so hard
And the old pharaohs still playing cards
I can't even walk
And I swear man I can't even talk
They force me to beat my brothers
But I promise I will never surrender
Come with me escape the Pharaoh
we'll dive under load of potatoes
I just want to save you from here
If you stay you will regret it
Brother, it's time to follow me
Or old pharao will mistreat us
You better follow me
Follow me brother
Come with me and the shapards
I don't really care where we going
But I know that if we don't
My bad if my Paraoh catch us
so come hurry up brother
Warn all of the people when we're going

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
