On April 3, three-time Grammy Award winner Bill Withers passed away at the age of 81. Among his top hits were “Ain’t No Sunshine,” “Lovely Day,” and “Lean on Me,” which will be the song New Yorkers will sing to out their windows this Thursday evening. Volunteer community choir Peace of Heart Choir kicked off the city-wide sing along last week with Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York.” This week, the event is planned to reach the entire nation.

In a city-wide sing-along organized by the Peace of Heart Choir, New Yorkers will sing Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York” out their windows tonight. The event will take place at 7:02pm, directly following the nightly #ClapBecauseWeCare ritual that’s swept the city.
