Maybe it’s because I grew up in church, but I believe there’s something transcendently spiritual about human voices blending in harmony; choir-ing if you will. While the lyrics weren’t theological, I was somewhat drawn to reading about a Prince tribute that took place recently in Toronto.
Toronto Life reported:
Last Monday was like any Choir! Choir! Choir! session: anyone who wanted to sing showed up, spent a couple of hours learning their parts and recorded a video to end the night. Except, instead of 200 people in the back room at Clinton’s, there were 2,000 choristers filling the seats of Massey Hall. Like they did with “Space Oddity” after David Bowie’s death, choir leaders Nobu Adilman and Daveed Goldman led the crowd through a three-part arrangement of Prince’s “When Doves Cry.”
