With barbed-wire dividing them, hundreds of singers joined a Canadian music group Sunday in dual performances at the U.S.-Mexico border.
The two founders of Toronto-based Choir! Choir! Choir! led separate choirs on either side of the border in a live-streamed performance of “With a Little Help from My Friends” by The Beatles. Daveed Goldman took to the stage at Border Field State Park in San Diego, Calif., while Nobu Adilman led a choir in the nearby Mexican border town of Tijuana.
“We hope people get super inspired by it and just having people come together, sing together across a border and spread that love,” said Adilman in a video promoting the event.
