As part of their continuing 50th Anniversary celebrations, the iconic and beloved characters of Sesame Street traveled to the NPR headquarters in Washington, D.C. to perform their very own Tiny Desk Concert (previously). The joyous performance included such classic songs as “The Sesame Street Theme (Sunny Days)”, “The People In Your Neighborhood” and the Will.i.am song “What I Am”. The group also performed a medley of some of their most famous songs such as “Rubber Ducky” and “C is for Cookie”. The concert ended with a rousing cover of The Carpenters’ classic song “Sing”.
And there they are at the Tiny Desk: Big Bird, Bert and Ernie, Rosita, Abby Cadabby, and Cookie Monster, all singing about a sunny day and how everything is A-OK. The Sesame Street crew — including Elmo, Grover, and other surprise guests — visited NPR’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., to celebrate Sesame Street’s 50 years of teaching the world its A-B-Cs, its 1-2-3s, how to be kind and how to be proud, all while spreading love and joy.
