Manawatu Guardian - - PEOPLE WHO MEAN BUSINESS -

World Singing Day is a global sin­ga­long and Palmer­ston North’s Six to Sixty joined the an­nual event on Satur­day.

More than 26 coun­tries across seven con­ti­nents sang with their own lo­cal per­for­mances.

The event cel­e­brates the world’s com­mon hu­man­ity, us­ing the power of singing to­gether to con­nect peo­ple and com­mu­ni­ties.

Each choir around the world per­formed their choice of songs, how­ever the one com­mon song that all choirs sang was From Now On from the movie The Great­est Show­man.

Lo­cal tal­ent Amy McKenna hosted the event with her choir Six to Sixty who per­formed in the Square with a va­ri­ety of well-known songs to en­cour­age the pub­lic to sing along with them.

Six to Sixty was well sup­ported by lo­cal singers from other choirs.
