“Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” – Everyday Rapture
Music and Lyrics: Fred Rogers
This gentle plea for a friend is a delicate moment from Broadway star Sherie Rene Scott’s semi-autobiographical musical about how growing up in Kansas led to a life in show business. The song was borrowed from the classic children’s television series Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood which made its U.S. network debut on this day in 1968. It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Go out and enjoy it.
