Patti Smith, Stewart Copeland & Choir! Choir! Choir! Perform ‘People Have The Power’
Collaborative singing project Choir! Choir! Choir! shared video of their team-up with Patti Smith, percussionist Stewart Copeland and over 200 New Yorkers for a rendition of Smith’s anthem “People Have The Power.” Filmed at The Public Theatre in New York City, the video prefaces Choir! Choir! Choir!’s planned event to unite singers across borders in the San Diego/Tijuana area.
Choir! Choir! Choir!, formed by Canadian artists Daveed Goldman and Nobu Adilman, will lead a performance at the UC San Diego campus at 3 p.m. on October 13 “to sing and celebrate the unique friendship, culture, and community shared in the border region of San Diego and Tijuana,” according to a statement.
“When you sing with others, you become bonded in ways that strengthen yourself and expand your sense of community,” Adilman said. “The opportunity to experience this with the people of San Diego and Tijuana, across borders and languages, is very exciting. We can’t wait!”
