World Singing Day
World Singing Day is a global sing-along held annually on the 3rd Saturday in October. As a catalyst for positive human connection, this one day each year serves as an opportunity to celebrate our global family through the international language of music.
Founded in 2012 by Colorado (USA) musician Scott Johnson, World Singing Day brings people together in their communities all around the world through the simple act of singing together.
"Sing together. Unite the world."
“We look different, we ALL smile the same”.
SkyBridge was established at Berklee College of Music in 2013 as a global project band that promotes diversity, equality and world peace with musicians around the world. The founder Utako Toyama (vocalist and composer) realized that "Music can be a bridge between people and that can happen to anyone - not just musicians" while she made friends from all over the world through music.
The slogan of SkyBridge is "We look different, we ALL smile the same" and our goal is to create meaningful experiences for the audience. We do this by making music with them at our events and thus, we connect those people beyond any borders they have.
"We Look Different, We ALL Smile the Same"
About International Day of Peace
The International Day of Peace was established in 1981 by the United Nations General Assembly. Two decades later, in 2001, the General Assembly unanimously voted to designate the Day as a period of non-violence and cease-fire.
The United Nations invites all nations and people to honor a cessation of hostilities during the Day, and to otherwise commemorate the Day through education and public awareness on issues related to peace.
