Youtube Choir Unites Singers From Around The World [Video]
More than 5,000 voices from over 100 countries come together to create a breathtaking performance online.
Grammy Award-winning composer and conductor Eric Whitacre has created a virtual choir (VC) that aims to unite people from around the world. He's taken singers of all ages, backgrounds and nationalities, and given them a chance to sing as one.
Whitacre was inspired by Britlin Losee – one of his fans who recorded a video of herself singing ‘Sleep’ and shared it on YouTube. So moved by the spirit of her performance, he asked all of his online fans to purchase Polyphony’s recording of ‘Sleep’, record themselves singing along to it, and upload the result.
