New Song Celebration!

New Song Celebration!

Last month, I asked my patrons to collaborate on a song with me, to send me simple recordings of themselves singing. I received an overwhelmingly positive and excited response and a bunch of recordings. I took all of the recordings and edited them into one big choir of my patrons, The Celebration Choir, and added it to a new song. The finished product is one of the coolest, most beautiful things I have been a part of.
