Why the World Needs to Sing

In November 2015, we had the great honour of delivering a TEDx Talk as part of TEDx SquareMile

As reported on our blog at the time, we spoke about the connective power of group singing and didn't need to look beyond the Starling Arts community to find proof of just that. 

Regardless of your background and experience, singing with others is an uplifting and powerful tool we can all embrace, as shown in the audience sing-along we led as part of our talk.

We've seen group singing create friendships and marriages; improve wellbeing, mental and physical health; build confidence and help people overcome personal obstacles and, most importantly, give people a sense of belonging. In our sometimes complicated world, community is everything. Thank you to all of you for being a part of ours.

We hope you enjoy watching this talk.
