MORRISTOWN, N.J., Nov. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Liquid Church of New Jersey is out to bring joy to the world this Christmas Eve by organizing the world's first virtual Christmas choir made up of singers from around the world wide web.
Whether they're soldiers in the Middle East, moms in Estonia or students in Phoenix, Arizona, the church will leverage technology to synchronize individual singers into a unified choir rendition of Silent Night.
"We're creating a unique experience for singers across the globe to come together as one voice this Christmas," said Tim Lucas, Lead Pastor of the New Jersey-based non-denominational Christian church.
"We have thousands of people who attend our church services, watch online or download our podcasts and we're asking them all to help spread the Christmas cheer together with us by getting involved."
The Christmas Virtual Choir will harness the trend of Web video technology and YouTube to connect people and create something beautiful across time and space for the December 24th event.
Singers are given access to sheet music, music tracks and a video-recorded conductor so that anyone can record and upload their contribution to YouTube. Liquid Church's media team will then assemble a composite video production that integrates all of the individual videos into one large-scale synchronized video rendering for the Christmas Virtual Choir.
Participation in the Christmas Virtual Choir is open to everyone around the globe, not just the 2,000 weekly attendees in New Jersey, and thousands more who routinely visit Liquid's website and Church Online campus.
The deadline for those who want to participate in the choir is December 15th. Instructions are available at http://www.lqd.ch/xmasvideo.
The Christmas Virtual Choir's performance will occur at six live Christmas Eve services in New Jersey on December 24th held by Liquid Church:
Morristown // Morristown Hyatt Hotel at 12pm, 2pm, 4pm
New Brunswick // The Heldrich Hotel at 2pm, 4pm
Nutley // John H. Walker Middle School at 2pm
