Sing Up Day on 13 March
Everyone is invited to Sing Up Day on 13 March 2019!
Schools around the world and groups of all ages will be joining together to celebrate the power of singing as part of this year's Sing Up Day. Every year, Sing Up sets aside one day to celebrate the positive impact and unique feeling of singing together.
The specially created Sing Up Day song, One moment, one people features flexible vocal parts to allow groups to perform it with an upbeat backing track or a cappella. With layers of harmony, it’s the perfect song for singers of all ages and abilities to join in. The song and all the resources that come with it are available for free on the Sing Up website, so anyone can take part.
This year is Sing Up’s tenth annual international singing event. The theme of the celebration is the power of singing in a group and how singing and working together helps us build authentic connections with others. The song, One moment, one people, written by Beccy Owen is an inspiring pop ballad.
'Singing is a truly inclusive activity which can involve every child and help them to feel part of a school community. Children can find security in singing in groups, enabling them to make new friends, share thoughts, discover common ground and have fun together.' says Michelle James, CEO of Sing Up.
