One Unsung Hero is now Sung Ballad for Joe Zito, by Annie Lanzillotto

I wondered what I could do, 100 years after the Triangle Fire.
I was telling my mother about heroic elevator operator Joe Zito,
and how he was an unsung hero. As soon as those words left my mouth,
I decided to "sing" him. Hence the Ballad For Joe Zito
