A group of kids will soon be on the world stage with a song they recorded in northwestern Connecticut.
Nearly two dozen students have been practicing and performing all over the state in a choir called Singout! CT. They perform at the upcoming UN Climate Summit in Paris.Their song will be played at the presentation of the Global Youth Event where a painting will be unveiled as the performance occurs.
“I was speechless when I found out, I must have been "oh my goodness,"” Eva Evans with SingOut CT said.
Their song was written by a local composer Pamela Peeters Nweeia and recorded last week.
“I think we were chosen because they heard us at the concert,” Singout! CT Director Alecia Evans said.
It was chosen to be played for world leaders in early December at a special event of the Paris Summit.
Their song is one of peace and harmony. A message they said they feel is perfect for Paris in the aftermath of devastating terrorist attacks. An event that is still weighing heavily on the minds of many, two weeks later.
“I heard what was going on there, and I felt like it was really good thing to do,” Collin Larson with Singout CT said.
“I've always felt that we can do that with our singing and now, I know that it’s not just in Connecticut or even through the U.S.,” Evans said. “It's throughout the world.”
