WATCH: Gay Men’s Chorus Of L.A. Dedicates “Peace On Earth” To Victims Of Newtown Massacre

The day after the tragedy  in Newtown, CT, 46 students from the Creative Planet School of the Arts joined the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles for a touching rendition of “Peace on Earth” and “Little Drummer Boy,” a composition made famous by David Bowie and Bing Crosby in 1977.
The performance was dedicated to the families of those who perished at Sandy Hook Elementary. “Music has a way of speaking to people that spoken words do not,” said GMCLA director Christopher Verdugo,  “and we felt that dedicating this video to the victims of Newtown was the only way to express our sorrow, grief and thoughts of hope.”

    What I didn’t say in comment No 1 was that I had listened to the video about 15 times in a row before I posted the comment. I can easily do that with a great song.

    I agree that it was “perfectly” beautiful singing.

    I love to listen to great musical presentations like this and when the performers are not widely known, that makes the enjoyment even more unbelievable.
