Ed Said (second performance) in the Sanders Soundstage
In 2009, Mississippi Public Broadcasting (MPB) created Ed Said. Ed is a boy who loves to learn about being healthy and is known around school for his love of raps and rhymes. This reputation has earned him the rap name, Ed Said. Ed Said shares his health knowledge in form of a song. Ed Said lives on the internet in webisodes at EdSaid.org, and in animated music video interstitials that broadcast on MPB’s television channel between children’s programming.
