The 2011 Virtual Choir video features 2052 performances of ‘Sleep’ from 1752 singers in 58 countries, individually recorded and uploaded to YouTube between September 2010 and January 2011.
“For anyone who wants to believe in the humanizing possibilities of a connected world, here is your anthem.”~Chris Anderson (TED Curator)
