LAURA SULLIVAN, “900 Voices”

Sometimes simplicity can be a powerful thing.  So when Grammy-award winner Laura Sullivan asked 900 people to video themselves singing her song, putting the results together must have been challenging in many ways.  But I guarantee that when you watch the video you will feel empowered, united, happy, festive, joyous, and amazed.  While music comes from all cultures and all kinds of people, the results are universal, and colour, culture, gender, sexuality, politics, and religion may not matter at all.  No one can tell us better about this than our young children.  “900 Voices” is a must-see for children in elementary school, and wise music educators should incorporate this video as a part of their music programming.  Enthused secondary students could take the project further in many imaginative ways.  Most of all I would enjoy hearing this song recorded in a few different languages by some powerful vocalists who would feel passionate about the project.  Laura Sullivan has created this “900 Voices” entity unto itself, and it will flourish for many years to come.  Bravo!!
