The Talking Heads’ David Byrne said he will perform with Choir! Choir! Choir! at The Public Theater in New York City on Saturday night.
Toronto group Choir! Choir! Choir! will sing with rock legend David Byrne on Saturday night at The Public Theater in New York City.
The Talking Heads frontman posted on his website that he will perform with the singalong group and “hundreds of strangers.”
“I’ve sat mesmerized watching online videos of the Canadian group Choir! Choir! Choir! They somehow manage to get hundreds of strangers to sing beautifully together — in tune and full-voiced — with rich harmonies and detailed arrangements,” Byrne said on his website. “With almost no rehearsal — how do they do it??”
“Well, opportunity knocks! I’m going to find out their secret tonight, as I’m singing a song with them.”
The 65-year-old lived in Hamilton briefly after he and his parents moved from Scotland when Byrne was about 2 years old.
The performance in New York City is a stop on the Choir! Choir! Choir! U.S. tour.
