We're creating a global act of peace by singing together as one human family.
Here's all the info you need to know!
Why Are We Singing?
Together we can change the world… one voice at a time! Our global society has become thirsty for true connection and this sing-along allows you to create an authentic, loving and respectful experience for positive human connection to amplify itself organically. Research has proven time and time again that singing is great for mental health and general wellbeing, and connects communities. Singing together positively changes the brain so we thought it would be great to share it with you on a global scale!
What's Going to Happen?
When Do We Sing?
Monday morning, around 7:30am on the 23rd of May 2016.
Who Are The Liberators International?

They are a peaceful international social movement founded in Perth, Australia and are passionate about creating global demonstrations for peace and harmony on Earth that allow us to see that beyond our differences there is love and humanity.

Singing Over The Rainbow
This video happened at 7:51am on a Monday morning and turned into one of the most glorious moments of our lives. The video has gone on to being watched over 5 million times across youtube and facebook.
The World's Biggest Eye Contact Experiment
In this global event, we inspired over 100,000 people to share eye contact with strangers in cities all over the world. This has to be one of the most incredible events we've ever created. The sheer size and magnitude is hard to comprehend sometimes, but one thing we learnt is, the people of this world are ready for more opportunities to connect authentically with each other!
Singing Bob Marley on a Train
This was an impromptu performance after our first singing over the rainbow morning sing. We caught the train home and decided to create this as we were feeling inspired.
The World's Biggest Trust Experiment
This was our first global event that looked at the idea of building our sense of trust with strangers all over the world.
TEDx by The Liberators International
Peter Sharp, the founder presents his life journey with the Liberators and how these global events are changing the world.
TEDx How Singing Together Changes the Brain
Tania de Jong, is the founder and CEO of our official partner organisation. She presents a captivating speech on the power of singing together.
This sing-a-long is our collective opportunity to raise funds for charity as well as have fun!
How do we raise money with our voices?
You will be given the opportunity to raise funds for an organisation that you care about with your full length video from your experience. The video you create is going to be incredibly inspiring and you will be able to use this as a vehicle for driving attention to a not-for-profit cause you care about. The money raised will be 80% for the organisation or your choice and 20% for the Liberators International.
Safe, reliable, and unique.
Why Monday Morning?
Monday mornings are famous for being dull, uninteresting and often depressing moments. We've selected Monday morning because it's going to make a much bigger impact when we create an act of love and unity in the most unexpected location, time and place. If you are unable to do it on a Monday you can do it on a Tuesday ;) Just ensure you get the video submitted to us before the cut off date.
Can We Collaborate with Live Musicians?
Absolutely! We encourage you to collaborate with a local artist of sort. This is a great opportunity to launch artists into the world with a wonderful video. It's important that the song remains a song of cultural significance and that he or she is able to play Three Little Birds by Bob Marley in the same musical key.
What If I Don't Have a Bus, Train or Boat?
If you are unable to organise an event on a local bus, train or boat it's advised that you create the moment in a public space where you will be able to hand out lyrics to the public. Opportunity for public involvement is the key!
