First Ever Space-to-Earth Musical Collaboration

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, from aboard the International Space Station (I.S.S.), and Ed Robertson, a Canadian lead singer from Barenaked Ladies band recently recorded a fantastic single titled “I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing)” with a children’s choir, the Wexford Gleeks from Wexford Collegiate School for the Arts.

It’s described as the “first space-to-earth musical collaboration” and it was “commissioned by CBCMusic.ca and The Coalition for Music Education with the Canadian Space Agency to celebrate music education in schools across Canada.”

Watch the video below as astronaut Chris Hadfield performs “I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing)” with Ed Robertson.
