Watch David Byrne performing Bowie’s “Heroes” with choir

This month musician David Byrne partnered with Choir! Choir! Choir! for a performance at the Under The Radar festival in New York.


At the time, the artists made a beautiful tribute to David Bowie with a cover of the classic “Heroes”. Although records made by fans were already available online, an official clip for the new version of the track has just been shared.

In a statement, Byrne commented on the collaboration with the choir:

“There is a transcendent feeling of being subordinate and surrendering to a group. This applies to sports, military exercises, dances … and group singing. A person becomes part of something greater than himself, and something within us gratifies us when it happens. We cling to our individuality, but we experience pure bliss when we abandon it. So the rewarding experience is part of the show”.

It is worth remembering that Byrne will be releasing a new studio album, titled American Utopia, on March 9th.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
