Sing Peace  Around the World

W e d n e s d a y   21,  S e p t e m b e r   2 0 1 6    



"Come and sing the song that will go all the way around the world!" 

 Children from across the planet will come together to sing for peace on Wednesday, September 21st 2016 to celebrate the United Nation's Day of Peace. The singing will commence on the shores of New Zealand and continue from country to country until it reaches the shores of the Hawaiian Islands 24 hours later.  This event will become one of the largest United Nation's Day of Peace celebrations on record. In 2009, "Sing Peace" involved over 65,000 children from some 35 different countries. We hope to reach 100,000 children singing for the 2016 event. Start today. Register your school below, download the free song  Light a Candle for Peace, watch the Sing Peace videos, and start learning the song with your class. Happy singing and see you in September!
