You may be familiar with the Bob Marley song "Three Little Birds."

The Morgantown Learning Academy is recording the tune in hopes to be in Playing For Change's Music Video this September.

The Playing for Change Foundation promotes peace and social change through music.

The organization creates music videos from musicians world-wide. If MLA is chosen it would be the lone Appalachian representative.

"I think it's really important that our kids realize that all of our hard work can contribute to something even greater, and I think it helps them to dream big, and to realize that the hard work they put into this is going to matter not just to themselves, but kids around the world," said Jen-Osha Buysse, MLA teacher.

More than 100 kids participated.
