The national singing organisation for England, Sing Up, has released a video of its international Digichoir performing There’s a power in the music by Lin Marsh for Sing Up Day, which took place on 11 March 2020.
48045 singers from 289 schools in 26 countries across 5 continents came together for the event and Sing Up received 103 videos from participants.
Sing Up said, ‘We saw an incredible selection of performances this year and were super impressed by all of the hard work [schools] put in. It was really amazing to see people finding lots of different ways of getting involved in Sing Up Day – from whole school assemblies to all-day Sing-a-thon events.
‘Even in the extraordinary circumstances brought on by the pandemic, with some schools already having closed for lockdown, we saw teachers across the world managing to bring their pupils together from home in their own school Digichoir videos.
‘This year’s song was about the empowering nature of coming together in song and [teachers’] dedication to keeping children singing and bringing school communities together, despite being physically separated, proved that there really is a ‘power in the music’.’
