Sesame Street’s NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

In honor of Sesame Street‘s 50 years on television, Cookie Monster, Grover, Bert and Ernie, Rosita, Abby Cadabby, Big Bird, and a few other beloved Muppets visited NPR Music’s Tiny Desk at NPR headquarters in Washington D.C. to put on a 15-minute-long live Tiny Desk Concert for kids and adults alike.

The gang sings “Sunny Days”, aka the Sesame Street Theme Song, “People in Your Neighborhood”, featuring All Songs Considered host and producer Bob Boilen, “What I Am”, “Sing After Me”, “Sing”, and a medley that includes Sesame Street favorites like “What’s the Name of that Song”, “Rubber Ducky”, “C is for Cookie”, and more. From NPR:

Sesame Street has won more major awards than any other group to play the Tiny Desk, including 11 Grammys and 192 Emmys. There was a lot of love as the cast of Sesame Street got to meet NPR hosts and newscasters, who in turn got to geek out meeting their favorite Muppets and the creators behind the felt and fur.
