    Watch: David Byrne Performs David Bowie's "Heroes" with Choir! Choir! Choir!
    Breania Smith

    David Byrne, whose new album, American Utopia, is out March 9, joined a group of strangers in the lobby of the Public Theater in New York City during the Under the Radar Festival earlier this month to perform David Bowie's "Heroes." Organized by the group Choir! Choir! Choir! led by directors Nobu Adilman and Daveed Goldman, singers and non-singers alike were invited to participate in the mass sing-along, with Byrne singing lead.

    "I performed with this group whose shows consist of teaching large groups of total strangers a song arrangement that they then all sing together," Byrne says. "It's an extraordinary thing." You can read his explanation of how it all came together at davidbyrne.com and see just how extraordinary a thing it is in the video below.
