Some might be asking, “What is this all about?” Well that’s a great question. For me it was about overcoming a fear and checking off a bucket list “Must do”. After reading an article about the 37 things people regret on their deathbed, it pointed out performing for an audience was something a lot of people said they felt they missed out on and just like that, I was instantly stoked to be apart of this. It’s also about self care. Singing is a major therapy and can help with all kinds of things… that’s why most of us (I know I do) sing in the car, or in the shower. When we’re sad, when we’re happy, going through heartbreak or just a tough time, singing to the perfect song can make you feel ten times better. This takes it one step further by joining community with song and helping move some of those unhealthy blockages that we so easily ignore.
Even Time Magazine wrote an article on the health benefits of singing with others. Here’s a clip of that:
“When you sing, musical vibrations move through you, altering your physical and emotional landscape. Group singing, for those who have done it, is the most exhilarating and transformative of all. It takes something incredibly intimate, a sound that begins inside you, shares it with a roomful of people and it comes back as something even more thrilling: harmony. So it’s not surprising that group singing is on the rise.
The benefits of singing regularly seem to be cumulative. In one study, singers were found to have lower levels of cortisol, indicating lower stress. A very preliminary investigation suggesting that our heart rates may sync up during group singing could also explain why singing together sometimes feels like a guided group meditation. Study after study has found that singing relieves anxiety and contributes to quality of life. Dr. Julene K. Johnson, a researcher who has focused on older singers, recently began a five year study to examine group singing as an affordable method to improve the health and well-being of older adults.”

We’re so excited to be creating this fun filled night of musical delight for you all and can’t wait to cheer with you guys while we all work towards a better world. As Gandhi said, “As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world – that is the myth of the atomic age – as in being able to remake ourselves.” We hope to show you the change we want to see in the world through music.
