After New Yorkers clap from their windows at 7pm tonight, a city-wide singalong of “New York, New York” will be taking place!
The event is being organized by Peace of Heart Choir, which regularly conducts free performances at NYC hospitals, nursing homes, shelters and more.
New York Sings Along will also be live-streaming the sing-along on their Facebook page. And, two New York radio stations – WKCR (89.9 FM) and WBAI (99.5 FM) – will be broadcasting the event.
A Facebook Live event on Thursday, April 16 at 6:45 pm, during and after the nightly “Clap Because We Care” tribute.
Join us to create a city-wide sing-along which will hopefully bring hundreds (dare we hope for thousands?) of New Yorkers to their windows, terraces, and more to sing “New York, New York” after the clapping and cheering of “Clap Because We Care” on Thursday, April 16. We’ll be coordinated with a Facebook Live feed from our New York Sings Along Facebook page. All you need to truly do is open a window and head to the Facebook page, And be prepared to clap, cheer, then sing.
At 6:45, before the Clap begins, we’ll launch a Facebook Live feed from the New York Sings Along page. We’ll use the feed to synchronize participation in the sing-along at the end of the cheer.
