Canadian singer, Shirsha Chakraborty, is a featured singer in Grammy® winning composer, Laura Sullivan’s new video production, 900 Voices.
Laura called out to the world to join her in a powerful plan to make a music video. Her request was simple. Take a video of yourself singing her song We Are Love and send it to her. The response was overwhelming.
938 people from Australia, Brazil, Israel, Croatia, Korea, Kenya, India, and many other countries, participated by making videos and sending them to Laura.
The result is epic. 27 languages included in one song and video about love and unity. The video, released on April 9, 2014, is titled 900 Voices. In less than one week since release it has received over 50,000 views and was accepted on the Ellen DeGeneres Tube Channel.
When Laura discovered Shirsha on YouTube, she immediately invited her to be part of the video project. Shirsha’s video submission was chosen as one of the few featured artists out of the 938 participants in the project.
These 938 amazing people will make you happy. Elena from Bulgaria, still in her hospital gown, sings and sweetly kisses her newborn son. A group of children in Uganda, who were once homeless, sing and dance like they are the richest kids in the world. A fire department of tough guys from New Jersey gives it their all.
“I was so excited to discover Shirsha’s talent and was delighted that she chose to participate.” says Laura. “I was hoping to get a lot of participation, but what I received back was beyond my wildest dreams. People from all over the world and from every walk of life sent in incredible videos. Watching them moved me to tears. I hope I have honored these hundreds of wonderful people by including them in the video.”
The resulting video, with the blending of the many voices, faces, and languages, creates a powerfully moving experience that shines a light on the unifying power of love in our world.
900 Voices, promises to make you smile, and maybe even cry. 938 people, 27 languages, 1 song.
50% of the music proceeds of 900 Voices are going towards the national nonprofit Little Kids Rock. This organization partners with economically disadvantaged school districts to run music programs. To date they have served more than 325,000 children in 13 states.
