SALT LAKE CITY – The Mormon Tabernacle Choir will join performers from around the world in celebrating the 50th anniversary of Disney’s “It’s a Small World.”
The famed choir will join bagpipers from Scotland, Bollywood movie actors in India and a firefighter from New York City in creating a worldwide video of singing and dancing to celebrate the anniversary on April 10, according to an LDS Church press release.
“It’s a delight to be a part of today’s announcement,” said Ron Jarrett, president of the Mormon Tabernavle Choir. “This iconic song and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir both cross generational and cultural boundaries to unite people through music.”
The choir and the classic Disney attraction were both featured at the New York World’s Fair in 1964.
The video produced on April 10 and others will help launch smallworld50.com, the global online hub for the attraction’s anniversary.
Fans are encouraged to record videos of themselves on the smallworld50 website singing, “It’s a Small World,” and to create a virtual “It’s a Small World,” doll to share with friends on social media sites. The dolls will benefit the United Nations Children’s Fund that provides health care and immunizations, clean water and sanitation, nutrition, education, emergency relief and more to children worldwide.
