There are two types of people in this world – those who sing, and those who don’t…YET!
Big Big Sing is the UK’s big, big singing project, making it as easy as possible to get people singing by bringing them together – regardless of previous experience – to have a good time and feel better through breaking into song.
Singing is fun, but it also has wonderful social, health and wellbeing benefits. Participants in Big Big Sing have said:
“The energy and joy was amazing”
“The best singing experience of my life”
Big Big Sing aims to inspire thousands of people across the UK to join in and celebrate the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games through singing, and to make singing the soundtrack to the Games.
