MISSOURI VALLEY, Iowa — Iowa’s “Singing Superintendent” has had a busy week. But as usual, Brent Hoesing was equal to the task.

Hoesing posted a video on YouTube, singing his version of Dua Lipa’s “Levitating” with his three daughters.

“I’m back for the second day in a row, to let you know about an important announcement,” Hoesing raps in the video. “You might say it is like yesterday.”

Donning sunglasses, Hoesing and his daughters launch into the song.

“If you didn’t get enough sleep today, then I’m about to give you that time,” Hoesing sings. “I was hoping for submission from this huge snow system, but the snow is not stopping in time.”

Hoesing advises students to “Play Fortnite.”

Hoesing closed school on Monday by singing his version of “I Will Survive,” KCCI reported.

Hoesing’s music videos are not new, but they are always fresh. Last January, for example, he warbled a parody of the “Frozen 2” song, “Some Things Never Change,” WOWT reported.

Hoesing also announced school closings with a PG-version of Lizzo’s “Good as Hell,” accompanied by students and teachers, KETV reported.
