Choir! Choir! Choir! Covers Daniel Johnston
Choir! Choir! Choir! performed the tribute to Johnston at their concert at Clintons in Toronto on Tuesday, September 17. A note from C!C!C!’s Daveed Goldman and Nobu Adilman (DaBu) reads:
C!C!C!, The world lost a true artist this week. Daniel Johnston was an artist’s artist. There was true innocence in everything he did. It shone through in his music, drawings and paintings, and influenced countless other artists to follow his lead, although he never thought of himself as an influencer. He just did what came naturally to him. He created.
As most people know, Daniel Johnston suffered from mental illness and worked through so much of it with his art. For that reason, we will be donating proceeds from this week to Art With Impact, an incredible organization helping to work through stigmas surrounding mental illness through art. Check them out here.
So, we sing one of DJ’s most beautiful songs in honour of the legacy of artistry he has left behind. RIP Daniel Johnston.
Accompanied by the audience, Choir! Choir! Choir! can be seen performing “True Love Will Find You In The End” below:
