The 2010 Flag Day Great NYC Metro Call To Song - All Boroughs Represented

Thanks and kudos to all of you in the five boroughs who sang out with us during the Great NYC Metro Call To Song at 7pm on Flag Day, June 14, 2010, especially those who gathered  at 700 Columbus Ave and  Paddy Reilly’s Music Bar in Manhattan, West Williams’ Each1Help2’s group  at Burnside Ave & The Grand Concourse in the Bronx, the NYJTL Aces Club at PS42  in Queens, the Brownsville  &  Red Hook Recreational Centers in Brooklyn and Dennis McKeon’s Where-To-Turn’s group in front of Tug’s Restaurant in Staten Island.

We hope you had fun and will join us every year at 7 pm on Flag Day.

A special thanks to John Fisher and Jenny Boyd Murphy of Walkabout Clearwater Chorus who sang with me on WSNR-620AM as we led the city in "This Land Is Your Land."

Next year, with your help, we truly can get one million New Yorkers singing together – celebrating America, promoting harmony, and helping to raise $1 million for hunger relief in NYC.
Then NYC can be an example for the rest of our nation, showing that people of all manner of stripes can sing together and, despite differences, can first agree to disagree and then agree to agree, so we can get things done and move our nation forward.

So start getting your friends and neighbors, houses of worship, blocks and apartment buildings, schools & colleges, parents, community organizations, Mayor Bloomberg and our city officials -and tell the NYC Public Schools Chancellor to involve all of our schools’ kids & parents.

If you can do that, the Guinness World Records will declare NYC as the largest one city chorus ever, and tourists will come from all over the world every year to hear us sing.
