Earlier this month, 1999 members of Choir!Choir!Choir!–a group that meets weekly and sings their hearts out–showed up at Toronto’s Massey Hall and paid tribute to Prince. In a matter of hours, writes Toronto Life, “choir leaders Nobu Adilman and Daveed Goldman led the crowd through a three-part arrangement of Prince’s “When Doves Cry.” And the result is touching. All proceeds went to the Regent Park School of Music and the Share The Music programme. You can see the group’s earlier tributes to David Bowie here, and many other performances on their YouTube channel.
