In an event created by JWT Brazil for the A.C. Camargo Cancer Center, the Unexpected Choir made up of laryngectomy patients gave a performance to raise awareness about larynx cancer and its main risk factor: smoking. Twelve patients surprised the audience of MASP’s auditorium, who were waiting for the USP (São Paulo University) Choir.
They interpreted parts of The Beatles songs All You Need is Love and She Loves You accompanied by audiologists from the institution. At the end, they held up banners that read “Listen to this choir’s voice: Don’t smoke.”
The patients, most of whom are over 60 years old, used sophageal voice, prosthesis and electronic larynx to sing and catch the audience by surprise. You can check out their performance in the video below:
