Watch on YouTube

Hey gang, here it is: Virtual Choir 4!

The numbers this time are astonishing: 8,409 video submissions, more than doubling the numbers for Virtual Choir 3. 101 countries represented including Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Cuba and seven nations from the African continent. We have truly become a global choir.

None of this could have happened without the extraordinary talents of the Virtual Choir team. Nearly two dozen professionals and a small army of volunteers have given their all to make this project possible, working month after month to make sure singers from every corner of the earth could have their voices heard. And what voices they were! Singers as young as six, as old as 98. Singers from as far north as Troms, Norway and as far south as Hororata, New Zealand. Singers of every race, creed and color, coming together for one reason and one reason only: to be a part of something larger than themselves.

I am deeply humbled to be a small part of this choir, and honored to make music with each and every one of you. Together we have all made something authentic, special and unique. Now let's give it to the world. Woo hoo!

What is the Virtual Choir?

About The Virtual Choir

The Virtual Choir began in May 2009 as a simple experiment in social media and has since exploded into a global phenomenon, creating a user-generated choir that brings together singers from around the world in their love of music making through the use of technology, whether singing alone in their living rooms, their dorm rooms, their garages or anywhere they can connect to the internet; these videos are synchronised and combined into one single performance to create the Virtual Choir.
