PBS' Mister Rogers remix by Symphony of Science's John D. Boswell for PBS DS.
PBS Digital Studios has released a new remix of Mister Rogers on YouTube. The cheery, thoughtful song is called "Sing Together" and features a mashup of some of Fred Rogers' best advice from his PBS show "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood."
"I've been thinking about music," Rogers begins in the video. "I guess you know that I really love music. It's been very, very important to me since I was very little."
In the YouTube video, Rogers tells viewers: "There's so much in this world we can learn no matter how young or how old we are," and "The truth is inside of us and it's wonderful when we have the courage to tell it."
Fred Rogers died in Pittsburgh at the age of 74 in 2003. He produced and hosted "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" from 1968-2001. Many PBS stations still air re-runs.
This is one in a series of remix videos that PBS Digital Studios has published in the last year, the series is called "Icons Remixed." PBS's first remix of Mister Rogers was published last year and has drawn more than 8.5 million views.
