ORGANISERS behind a global singing event say they hope to have community sing-alongs in 20 countries on October 21, with one to be held locally.

World Singing Day has been held annually since 2012, with its founders aiming to transcend religious and political differences and use music as the catalyst for world peace.

Brentwood’s Blue Gum Community Centre will be a local gathering point for people keen to belt out an hour of tunes on October 21.

Perth co-ordinator Sue Ross – founder and director of Choirs4kids and – said the goal was to fill the centre with song.

“It’s good way for people to have fun and to realise that we’re not all different and have a lot things in common,” she said.

Founder Scott Johnson said the aim was to have community sing-alongs in 20 countries.

Entry will be a gold coin with donations going to the Australian Children’s Music Foundation.
