It's amazing what beautiful music people can make when they work together.

That's the idea behind choir! choir! choir!, a Toronto-based choral singing ensemble with over 3000 rotating members that lets anyone who wants to sing join in.

In two weeks time, on December 15, choir! choir! choir! will use their community-minded approach to help raise funds for The Stop Community Food Centre in Toronto.

Over 100 members of the choir will perform favourites by The Beatles, Madonna, and Erasure, plus a few holiday pop classics ('Last Christmas' by Wham, anyone?) at three hospitals in the Toronto area.

Here's a taste of the kind of performance you can expect to see. This version of Bryan Adams' 'Run To You' is from 2011:

The group will be at Sunnybrook Hospital at 2 pm, Holland-Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital at 3:15, and The Briton House Retirement Centre at 4:30 on December 15.

Members of the public are welcome at Sunnybrook and Holland-Bloorview, so if you're in the area, feel free to stop by.

In a statement, choir! choir! choir! co-founders Nobu Adilman and Daveed Goldman said "by raising our voices in song, we ask people to donate to The Stop and help support their critical and innovative anti-poverty/anti-hunger programs."

Their goal is to raise $10,000 for The Stop. If you'd like to donate, visit their Giving Page right here.

The Stop's mission is "to increase access to healthy food in a manner that maintains dignity, builds health and community and challenges inequality."
