Scott Johnson imagines uniting the entire world with a common language: the language of singing.
That’s why the Boulder man started World Singing Day in 2012. It took him a few years to incorporate as a nonprofit and get the momentum rolling. This year, he’s finally bringing his idea public: to the Pearl Street Mall in front of the courthouse.
On Saturday, six local choirs will gather on the mall for two hours of a public, social sing-along of popular songs (ranging from Katy Perry to The Beatles), as well as classics such as “America the Beautiful” and a simple song that Johnson co-wrote titled “We Sing.”
On the same day, people in countries around the world will sing that same song, and others, in honor of the day.
He knows groups will be participating in New Zealand, Australia, Senegal, the Philippines, India, Canada, Europe and the United States.
Creativity Australia is proudly participating in World Singing Day with a community singalong at Federation Square on Friday 23 October. Join us between 1-2pm for an afternoon of music, joy and entertainment. Click here and singalong.
