King of Pop Michael Jackson penned and performed a huge number of hits across his career, but one of the most touching songs was Heal The World. He could never have expected that there would be an even more heartwarming performance of his hit five years after his death.
This beautiful rendition was performed by students at a school concert in Germany in 2014, and the internet is going crazy for it. In an interview, Michael Jackson said Heal The World was the song he was most proud of, and he also chose the same name for his foundation.
The focus of the song and the foundation was to teach children how to help others and improve the world. It was one of the songs sung at the end of his funeral. It's safe to say the choir had big shoes to fill, but happily, they smashed it out of the park. If there is an afterlife, it's easy to imagine Michael smiling and singing along with them. Their performance is absolutely perfect, and they appear to be enjoying the song rather than just trying to get through the concert.
A special mention is also needed for the soloist. She appears to be in her late teens and has a fantastic voice. She pronounces every word perfectly, which is impressive as English is not her first language. She projects passion and sincerity into her performance which is backed up by some gorgeous harmonies from the rest of the choir. It's hard to believe they are school children and not a professional choir.
Luckily for us, other performances have been uploaded to their YouTube channel, including Africa by Toto and Every Breath You Take by The Police. Sadly there have been no new uploads for a few years, so it's possible that when this group of kids left school, the choir changed too much.
If you haven't heard them sing, it is well worth a watch of the videos we do have. It's impossible to watch them and not smile because the world seems a little brighter at that moment. If you haven't seen it, check out the video now. If you would like to see more from this choir of talented youngsters, you can subscribe to their YouTube channel.
