Sing along with people around the world in these virtual choirs
The Sofa Singers

One of the main things that is being impacted by the world’s current coronavirus crisis is social activities: classes, groups, parties and gatherings.

The internet has already partially saved our social lives, via apps like Houseparty and tech like Zoom for chatting with our mates. Then there were live-streamed events, virtual yoga classes and even digital art exhibitions.

But now, thanks to the internet, we can get even closer to our fellow human beings, by singing together in a virtual choir. If the videos of cities in lockdown coming together to sing on their balconies left you with a lump in your throat, here’s your chance to add your vocal chords to the orchestra of voices.

The Sofa Singers is a free online singing event that aims to ‘bring people together from around the world to spark joy and human connection.’ Hundreds of singers join a Zoom call and learn a new song together, though they are also aiming to livestream the session on YouTube so that more people can get involved.

Lifefullness Live is another platform that hosts sing-a-longs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 9pm (UAE time). You can either join a video call near you to sing with your neighbours, or stream the event on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or YouTube and simply sing along at the top of your voice. The choirs will be led by a different performer every time.

Fancy joining in? All you have to do is sign up, warm up your vocal chords and mark your calendar for the next sing along.
