World's Largest Online Choir. 1752 Voices. 58 Countries. Incredible.

The 2011 Virtual Choir is an amazing project created by Eric Whitacre which features 2052 performances of 'Sleep' from 1752 singers in 58 countries. Each track was individually recorded and uploaded to YouTube between September 2010 and January 2011.


If this blows your mind as much as it did mine, you have to watch Eric's TED talk where he first premiered the video. He and the choir received two standing ovations.

"For anyone who wants to believe in the humanizing possibilities of a connected world, here is your anthem."
- Chris Anderson, TED Curator
