More Than 2,000 People Just Came Together To Sing The ‘Hallelujah’ Chorus

During a recent performance by a famous church choir, something happened that left the Internet buzzing. While the choir’s traditional renditions of beloved songs are incredible, the singers decided to do something a little bit different this time.

The beginning looks like any other performance, but watch what happens about a minute in. It really is a testament to the power of music.

Technology sometimes creates distance between people, but in cases like this, it helps thousands of voices come together in the most moving way.

Obama: Romney says shop around if worried about college cost; Citizens: Duh

http://twitter.com/#!/BarackObama/status/238022808498753536

What a monster! Comparison shopping and living within one’s means? Cue the evil music!

President Obama once again proves that math is hard, to him. As is reality. Man of the people? That’s impossible when one is so very far out of touch in an Ivory tower. Last night, his official Twitter account actually tried to slam Romney for suggesting that people shop around, if worried about college costs.

Then what happened? RT @BarackObama: FACT: Romney has said students should “shop around” if they’re worried about higher education costs.

What happened is that citizens quickly pointed out the idiocy of trying to slam Romney for the crime of using common sense and smart thinking. The president’s pitiful desperation, it burns.

— Wes (@FTWes) August 22, 2012

Exactly. Twitter user Kevin Eder sums it up.

I guess the concept of 'shopping around' is foreign to you when you believe the government should run everything. Right @BarackObama?

— Kevin Eder (@keder) August 22, 2012

Can anyone on the @Obama2012 campaign tell me why students shouldn't shop around for more affordable education? #Obama2012

— Kevin Eder (@keder) August 22, 2012

God forbid Obama even pretend to know anything about how markets work. Is that how this works @Obama2012? #Obama2012

— Kevin Eder (@keder) August 22, 2012

"What, you mean people should actually seek value for their money by shopping around? That's not how *I* run government.' – Obama

— Kevin Eder (@keder) August 22, 2012

Obama doesn't want young people shopping around, but he does want taxpayers to fund birth control so they can sleep around.

— Kevin Eder (@keder) August 22, 2012

Don't mind me, I'm just shopping around for a president who knows something about anything. @BarackObama

— Kevin Eder (@keder) August 22, 2012

Heh. Indeed. We can finally ring up that sale at the cash register called a voting booth in November.

Watch These Girls Totally Rock Out On Their Ukuleles!

In the music world, the ukulele is a member of the lute family, and it’s a staple of Hawaiian cultural music. The instrument was introduced to Hawaiians by Portuguese explorers, and they immediately took a liking to it.

These talented musicians show off the beauty of ukulele music in all its awesome glory.

That’s definitely way cooler than the vast majority of ukulele videos floating around online! These two are amazing, and watching musicians play is always better when you know that they’re having a blast.

The Best And Worst Of Music Festival Attendees.

There’s nothing more fun than a summer music festival. You get to spend a lot of money, stand around in the heat all day in a smelly sea made up of thousands of intoxicated people, spend even more money, and see some your favorite bands perform live (though probably just a couple that you’ve heard of). In all seriousness, they really can be fun to go to, but whether or not you enjoy a music festival relies heavily on other people–and no, they’re not the band members. The people who can make or break your having a good time at a music festival are your fellow attendees. Take a look at some of the best and worst of them! WORST:

1. It’s called a shirt, buddy, and they cost way too much at the merch tables.

2. No, I do not want to become muddy buddies.

3. The Titanic sinks and this gets to happen? Talk about unfair.

4. Someone really has to do something about those shirt prices.

5. Come.

6. On.

7. People.

8. At least he’s not wearing a Native American headdress?

9. What? Were the Pokey costumes sold out?

10. Get a room! Preferably one that isn’t a port-a-potty. The lines are long enough as it is.

11. Want to promote peace? Stop blocking everyone’s view.

12. “So this is MAH LIFE?!”

13. Okay, the previous PDA doesn’t seem so bad now.

14. I don’t think that’s the kind of shocking he was going for.

15. “Dad?”

16. That’s a lot of effort to put into making sure no one stands next to you.

17. “I don’t know, she seems pretty cool to me.” – a tree

18. There’s no way that baby could name three Dirty Projectors songs. They can barely even say “Mama.”

19. I don’t know what he keeps in that fanny pack and I don’t want to find out.

20. “WE WANT KHLOE! WE WANT KHLOE!”

BEST: N/A Now that you know who to approach and who to avoid at a music festival, all you need is hundreds of dollars to spend on a ticket. You could get a job, but you might be better off starting a band and hoping to get booked. Share this post using the button below.
