Event Details and Timeline

We’re looking for 1,000 a capella singers in the NYC area to join us for the event.

Here’s some background on how the day will play out:
1. Participants will gather for a practice early on May 14 in a central NYC location, and be divided into groups to sing at key locations throughout the city.
2. Your group, along with others from NYC, will serenade people during their morning commute. Everyone will sing the new campaign song, but will also be encouraged to put their own unique style on it – be that bluegrass or barber shop.
3. In the afternoon, all 1,000 participants will gather in one designated area to sing as a collective for the “launch moment.”
