Why get involved?
If you sing you’ll know that it makes you happy, relaxed, confident, inspired and full of energy. Take a look at our great reasons for getting involved with 123sing!
Teach the world to sing
Wouldn’t it feel good to help more people enjoy the benefits of singing by putting on an event for your friends, family, colleagues, neighbours or local community?
Singing together has many benefits including*:
- Physical relaxation
- Emotional release and stress busting
- A sense of happiness, positive mood, joy and ‘feeling high’
- A sense of greater emotional and physical wellbeing
- An increased sense of energy

Raise money for charity
We are encouraging you to hold an event in aid of Classic FM’s charity Music Makers, which funds music education and therapy projects for disadvantaged children and adults. Music Makers has funded projects including music sessions for children with hearing impairments to performances in nursing homes for elderly people with dementia. So by getting involved you could help even more people through music.
Everyone can sing
If you don’t sing or think you can’t sing, now’s your chance to give it a try! Many cultures believe that if you can speak, you can sing. There will be events for beginners, or you could just get together with your friends. Remember, don't be embarrassed - it's always worth a try!
Be part of a major national event
123sing! will be publicised all around the UK on the radio and in other media. For music groups it's a fantastic opportunity to raise the profile of your organisation. For others, it offers a chance to be part of a mass sing-a-long, the likes of which have never been tried before. Don't miss out!
We know that singing can help to bring communities together and make them stronger. Let’s get together on 1, 2, 3 October and prove it.
