“One Voice Roscommon” is our virtual children’s choir for Crinniú na nÓg 2020 and we’re inviting young Roscommon people aged 8+ to be in with a chance to be part of our One Voice Virtual Video performance by uploading a video of themselves singing ALONG to our chosen song.
“I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing” has been selected by our virtual Choir Master Derek Mahady who has pre-recorded two versions of the song (pick whichever suits you best) for you to video yourself singing along to.
Remember Derek is classically trained and his recording is just to guide you so don’t panic if you don’t sound just like him (you might be a girl!) – just do your best.
Here’s our simple steps:
- Have a listen to Derek’s introduction here:
- Listen to Derek singing the two versions of the song here – they differ slightly:
- Choose which Voice you are going to follow/sing along with and download your words from here:
Voice 1: Voice 1 Lyrics Jpeg
