An Idea, Thousands of People, Some Technology–Beautiful Music

Again, thanks to John Paul Caponigro for posting this so I could discover it.

This is one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen. This is the kind of event that shows the beauty we are capable of as a people. We get so caught up in the killing and the horrors, of our worship of the cult of the rich and the popular we forget the simple power of the masses to create something so beautiful.

A virtual choir – thousands of normal people all around the world who join together via the internet brought together by an idea and a shared love.

This first video is Eric Whitacre’s description of how this came to be.

The second is his first piece, Lux Aurumque – 185 people from 12 countries.

The third is his second piece, Sleep – 2052 people from 58 countries.

This last piece is in remembrance of Easter, in honor of the God of us all.

How Great Thou Art by Carrie Underwood and Vince Gill.

Happy Easter all.
