One Voice Children’s Choir Sings Uplifting Song ‘Chosen Family’

One Voice Children’s Choir performs a delightful cover of Rina Sawayama and Elton John’s ‘Chosen Family.’


‘Chosen Family’ is about finding your own tribe when your blood family lets you down. The song was part of British pop singer-songwriter Rina Sawayama’s album Sawayama in 2020. It resonated so much with Sir. Elton John that he decided to add his vocal and piano parts for a new track.

Tell me your story and I’ll tell you mine
I’m all ears, take your time, we got all night
Show me the rivers crossed, the mountains scaled
Show me who made you walk all the way here

Settle down, put your bags down
(Ooh) You’re alright now

It’s so true that sometimes in life, we have a ‘chosen family’ of individuals who are not our blood family but they support, bless, and love us unconditionally.

We don’t need to be related to relate
We don’t need to share genes or a surname
You are, you are
My chosen, chosen family
So what if we don’t look the same?
We been going through the same thing
Yeah, you are, you are
My chosen, chosen family

We love this cover by One Voice Children’s Choir for this message and the song. The world today really needs more of these songs to wipe away the violence, hurt, and bitterness that is filling it up.
