Choir! Choir! Choir! Surprises Idol Judge Lionel Richie

Choir! Choir! Choir! has sung with Tegan and Sara at the Junos, performed at a David Bowie tribute in New York, and have even taken to the Radio City Music Hall stage with Debbie Harry and The Flaming Lips. A collective led by creative directors Nobu Adilman and Daveed Goldman, the group has amassed a dedicated and passionate community of singers, along with a thriving international fan base on YouTube and beyond. Acclaimed for the ways in which the group brings music alive, its true importance may lie in something much more fundamental: it brings people — of all walks of life — together.

The duo are always expanding their fan base, and now they can add Lionel Richie to their list. Adilman and Goldman flew down to LA to surprise the American Idol judge with a public performance of “Hello”. Richie’s verdict on the pop-up song: “I loved it.”

Choir! Choir! Choir!’s keynotes, meanwhile, blend inspiring stories with interactive elements to offer an uplifting and unconventional take on what a conference speech can be.

Watch the video above to see the surprise.
