What happens when PBS Digital Studios collaborates with Symphony of Science’s John Boswell to pay tribute to children’s television legend Fred Rogers aka Mister Rogers? Pure magic! This magic is in the form of a song titled Garden of Your Mind, featuring the late, great, and beloved Fred Rogers.
This song and video left a huge smile on my face, and reminded me just how much I miss Mister Rogers.
The inspiration for the video, as explained by PBS on their YouTube page:
When we discovered video mash-up artist John D. Boswell, aka melodysheep, on YouTube, we immediately wanted to work together. Turns out that he is a huge Mister Rogers Neighborhood fan, and was thrilled at the chance to pay tribute to one of our heroes. Both PBS and the Fred Rogers Company hope you like John’s celebration of Fred Rogers’ message.
If you haven’t yet familiarized yourself with the wonder that is the Symphony of Science, I highly recommend you do so. All of the tracks are free. You can even download the videos and source tracks, allowing you to create your own Symphony of Science remixes. You can also download the entire Symphony of Science album on Bandcamp and the Remixes for the Soul including album, Garden of Your Mind, on Bandcamp, plus follow John D. Boswell on Twitter @musicalscience.
