P-Star visits Coney Island kids

Gimme a “P.”

Public School 329 students joined in the welcome chorus for one of rap’s sassiest stars when Priscilla Star Diaz — better known as P-Star — stopped by the Coney Island school for a motivational visit.

The Bronx-born musician, entertainer and actress, who was recently profiled on PBS’s “Independent Lens,” delivered a pro-literacy talk and even performed with students who surprised the teen with a tribute presentation of their own in the auditorium of the school, 2929 West 30th Street.

P-Star, a cast member of the children’s show, “The Electric Company,” began working Harlem nightclubs at the age of nine under the guidance of her father, who juggled the task of being a single parent with his daughter’s starry-eyed dreams.
