Patti Smith sings 'You Light Up My Life' ...

... on "Kids Are People Too"!

I can't stand Smith's voice, but this is a remarkable clip. She gets mad props for finding beauty in a song her CBGB comrades despised, singing the heck out of it, and — not least — showing genuine love to all those kids. When she tells them she wanted to be a missionary, it's clear that she really is one.
