Milwaukee Creates Million Voice/Drum Choir on United Nations International Day of Peace, Thursday Sept 21st.

The Million Voice Choir is a global peace mission to create unity through the healing power of music to create a wave of change. This annual global songfest mobilizes voices worldwide to sing “WE RISE”, a rousing anthem that uses water as a metaphor for unity in action.
Inspired by Filipina-American vocalist, musician and educator, Gemma, this community event Sing-a-Long and drumming will feature music by YOU! The Milwaukee community has added drums to the mix. Everyone is invited to sing, drum, and pray as we gather to be part of Gemma’s annual world-wide Million Voice/Drum Choir.
The Million Voice/Drum choir is in celebration of The United Nations’ International Day of Peace and Global Cease-Fire Day. The songs “WE RISE” and “WE’LL ALWAYS SING” were both inspired by the tragedy of 911. Participants should bring their drums to participate in “WE’LL ALWAYS SING” by WisconsiSinger/Songwriter, Celia. The drumming for this song will be taught at the event.

A MILLION VOICES AROUND THE WORLD LIFTED UP FOR PEACE!!
Why should families consider attending this event? To connect with others who hold hope in their hearts and minds for a more peaceful and just-filled world.
Each day, we are bombarded with stories in the news about
violence, war and suffering, locally and around the globe. There are also MANY groups of people coming together each day to build and strengthen their communities in the name of peace and justice. This event has that same purpose; to focus on the positive that is present in our lives, to pray or hope together for greater peace and understanding among eachother and the nations, adding the element of making powerful, joyful music together. The flow of the evening will also use water as a metaphor for unity in action in order to create a wave of change. The more people, the better, to reflect the diversity
that is Milwaukee, and that is the world.

This will be a SMOKE-FREE dinner time show featuring the delicious foods of Club Timbuktu and the rich vocal harmonies and rhythms of Holly Haebig, Jeff Bray, Cheryl Ann Kelly and Steve White. They have been known to do tasty cover tunes and original…not to be missed if you are new to this ensemble
I’m hoping to find Holly able to offer an on-line interview, starting with this question:
(Godsil) There was a time when many of us worried that the 4th of July Celebration at Gordon Park in Riverwest was a very sick and possibly even dying institution. And then I can remember my astonishment with a music and dance troupe that might have included you and Jahmes were rocking the park and event with what seemed like some kind of African American inspired music that had the Polish and German grandmas in attendance absolutely thrilled.
Can you tell us about your early days with that group, if you were indeed one of that group?
