The news getting your spirit down? Let Neil Haskell 'Lift it Up' in the latest video from the Singing Revolution studio sessions.

The Euro-pop song, written by Tony Spinosa and James Bearhart for their original musical Singing Revolution, is a rousing anthem in which the lead character, Heinz Tamm, rallies his fellow countrymen into celebrating their cultural pride in the face of a Soviet Union occupation.

"LIFT IT UP, LIFT IT UP
WE CAN SING OUR COUNTRY FREE.
LIFT IT UP, LIFT IT UP
WE WILL SHOW THEM ALL WE CAN BE."

Haskell, who rose to popularity in on the reality show 'So you think you can Dance', made his Broadway leading debut in Bring it On, before continuing onto shows such as The Times They Are A-Changin', Tuck Everlasting and Hamilton.
