Kids don't want to wear masks? Listen to this Aldine ISD teacher's song

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- An Aldine ISD primary school teacher wants her students to stay safe while they protect themselves from COVID-19 and jam while doing it.

The teacher, who goes by April Praise on Twitter, created an entire song to let her students know it's cool to wear a mask.

"All the cool kids wear a mask. All the cool kids wear a mask. When you're walking down the street or in class, all the cool kids wear a mask," she sings.

April, who is also a musician, singer, songwriter and DJ, teaches music at Griggs EC/PK/K.

"Going back to school, I already knew my students wouldn't wear the masks correctly. And so I had to come up with a way to make it cool for them to want to wear masks," she said.

"I knew whatever I wanted to make, I didn't want to make it a typical cheesy kids song," April continued. "I wanted to make a bop that even adults could jam out to. So I took all my knowledge and the vision and created the song."

You'll notice a Houston vibe throughout the song, from the music to the video, which was shot in front of the various murals around downtown Houston.

Watch the video, and you'll see a few Houston icons painted behind April including rappers Paul Wall and Slim Thug.
