  1. This is a really interesting thing going on in the music industry. I had never heard of it before, but I think it’s cool that it mostly came about by accident and not hours and planning and trying to figure out what is appealing to an audience. Just a guy and his fans having fun. I know you touched on how big the choir has grown from its first performance of 185 to its most recent including 5,903, but its also interesting that there are more than six million views collectively on the first three Virtual Choir performances according to his website. So clearly this project has found interest from people outside just the ones directly involved.


  2. I think its so amazing to see how the power of technology and the love of music can bring people to do something so awesome and cool! I think its insane to believe that 30, maybe even 20 years ago something like this would have seemed impossible, and now it’s a reality that is capturing the ears of everyone! I honestly never would have known about this had it been for your project so I’m super excited that you chose to do something so interesting. I guess one question I have is that do you think the expansion of virtual choirs could expand to something even more complex, like a virtual orchestra? I think it would be cool to see something like that come to fruition.
