Singing around the web

I watched the Academy Awards tonight. It was the 84th consecutive year that the movie industry has gathered to honor its brightest stars - the actors, directors, writers, editors and others that come together to make the magical moments that we enjoy in the theater. One actor said, "Movies are like watching our dreams in the afternoon." How true.

Tonight was a very international show with best actor and film honors going to the French-produced film, "The Artist." The international awards combined with the pageantry of the show led me to choose today's song for Music Sunday at Experience Optimism.

It is an international experience, "Lux Aurmque" performed by Eric Whiteacre and a virtual choir made up of vocalists from around the world, appearing via web cams and computers wherever they live.

 

According to an interview conducted on MSNBC, Whiteacre is directing a virtual choir again this year made up of 3,800 individual singers from 73 countries.



"Everyone is accepted," claims Whiteacre, "and their only motivation is to be a part of something good and beautiful as possible." 

I believe they are sharing optimism with their voices and virtual connection to each another. Thank you for the beautiful experience.
