Come join us and let us once again make beautiful music together. Thousands of singers from countries took part in Virtual Choir 5: Deep Field to feature in the epic new film celebrating the greatest discovery of the Hubble Space Telescope: the Deep Field images. The event was broadcast live on TV and webcast.
