TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Radio stations across the country have picked up a song written by a local second grade class.

Students at Lulu Walker Elementary School wrote and recorded a song called "Give Them Kindness," which is about friendship, having dignity and not giving up when times get tough.

Tucson station KXCI played the song several times before it caught on to radio stations in the Midwest and east.

The 30 students practiced up to two times per week and recorded the song in the classroom. Each student sang at least one line.

Walker School participates in the Ben's Bells Kind Kids program.
