World Singing Day - 15 October (Third Saturday in October)

Every year on the third Saturday in October, World Singing Day encourages people around the globe to sing. The goal of the day is to host a world-wide sing-along that fosters unity and harmony through a common experience.

According to research, singing with others forms a strong connection. Along with harmonizing voices, singing together synchronizes heartbeats. When done in groups, singing also helps to break the ice. Because of this, social bonds are formed more quickly.

Other benefits of singing include:

  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Gives the lungs a good workout
  • Helps improve posture
  • Strengthens the throat and palate, which can reduce snoring
  • Releases endorphins and works as a natural anti-depressant
  • Lowers stress levels
  • Boosts confidence levels
  • Broadens communication skills

Scott Johnson, a musician from Colorado, founded World Singing Day in 2012. Johnson is also an alumnus of Up with People, a nonprofit international organization that teaches young adults to interact in a multi-cultural environment. The organization uses travel, the performing arts, and various workshops to create change in communities.
