Big Sing London 2019kssingers.com
It’s not a concert, it’s a Sing!
Big Sing London is an event where a couple hundred people get together to just sing for the joy of it for an hour or more. No skill is necessary, and no one will hear you because everyone is singing. People have a need for community, to come together and engage in activity that feeds the spirit. What better activity to do that than by singing together? Besides, it’s proven that singing has positive health benefits!
We’ll sing songs of all kinds—traditional songs. Songs that unite us. Fun songs. Inspiring songs. Simple songs. Songs we can just sing out ut and not worry if we’re singing too loud—because we’ll all be singing loud! Word sheets will make it easy to join in.
