Yesterday, the ad-hoc community choir Flash Chorus posted a video of their South Carolina chapter singing "Dark Parts" by Perfume Genius. The performance is an emotionally charged interpretation of the song that Mike Hadreas (the genius behind Perfume Genius) wrote for his mother, taken from his second album, Put Your Back N 2 It. Hadreas retweeted a link to the performance with an appropriate amount of crying emojis.
Whew 😪😭😭 So many people singing a song that is so important to me and my family. I can't https://t.co/hxuN62lIEw— Perfume Genius (@perfumegenius) March 10, 2016
Hadreas was clearly very moved.
Cant handle that chorus singing "Dark Parts." I have/had plans today 😭😭😭— Perfume Genius (@perfumegenius) March 10, 2016
The eclectic collection of faces and voices come together with Hadreas’ songwriting in a way that will give you chills, especially when they harmonize to the ending line: I will take the dark parts of your heart into my heart. Honestly, this content is NSFW because you’ll probably cry too.
