I wrote a song about how I want to play Maria Von Trapp, but the melanin be holding me back. =========== Written & Performed by Abiola Ogunbiyi Pianist - Alex Turney Camera Operator, Editor - Yeukayi Ushe Set Decorator - Yinka Ogunbiyi Special Thanks to: The Watermill Theatre, Morgan Philpott, Jemal Felix, Amy Oxley, Craig Oxley. =========== Lyrics: My day in the hills will never appear, I know.
