Judy Collins & The Global Virtual Choir Re-Release Her Version of “Amazing Grace” in Aid of the WHO Solidarity Response Fund

Fri Jun 19, 2020

On the 50th Anniversary: Judy Collins & The Global Virtual Choir Re-Release Her Version of “Amazing Grace” in Aid of the WHO Solidarity Response Fund, a much needed monetary initiative in the current state of the world crisis.

Over the past few weeks, 1000 singers from across the globe — professional and amateur, alike — answered Judy Collins’ call to sing “Amazing Grace” with her as a sign of solidarity in this unprecedented time.

This new version of Judy’s historic recording is out now, and Ringo Starr, Alan Cumming, Judith Owen, Steve Earle, Madeleine Peyroux, Mandolin Orange, and Tift Merritt — plus internationally known choirs like The Sixteen, New York Choral Society, Voices International, and GOA University Choirare — are just some of the singers who participated in this Global Virtual Chorus event.

All proceeds raised from this single will be going to the World Health Organization Solidarity Response Fund: covid19responsefund.org/

BTW Andrew Bird, Lee Harvey Osmond, Bangerz Brass, Sonny & The Sunsets, Spoons, Allison Lupton, Julian Taylor, Steve Earle, Ex Hex
