Citizens of Song was founded by Irish singer and social entrepeneur, Rebecca Winckworth. Throughout years of touring around the world, meeting new people and discovering new places and cultures, Rebecca came up with the idea for Citizens of Song. However, the first realisation of the organisation would not come true into the breakout of Covid19.
At the height of the lockdown in March, Rebecca singing from her balcony for her whole neighbourhood, who came out every night at 8pm to listen to her performance for two months. Music brought the neighbourhood together during the most frightening and stressful times and created a moment of peace and joy each day. The story even hit the international news- see link here.
“I realised how powerful a role music played in bringing my local community peace and a feeling of being together and I thought, “I have to replicate this experience, but on a global scale” and thus Citizens of Song was born.”
