Hive Open Mic 72: Global Harmony

Our community's open mic event attracts 100+ musicians and thousands of listeners each week. We provide a haven for creative expression and genuine connection. All are welcome. Every contributor can be proud of the fact we are building a live music movement, sharing songs with an international audience. Global harmony is our mission. World peace is our vision.

For Hive Open Mic 72, we will explore the following theme: "Global Harmony." This is a special occasion to celebrate our mission and connect with artists around the world. This week, all musicians are invited to sing the same song, which I will introduce below. Optionally, musicians can sing a different song of their choosing. Everyone is encouraged to share the collective current as we express and connect through: Global Harmony.

Note: I asked my Hive Open Mic teammate @mipiano to send a Spanish-language version of this post to bring further clarity to our Spanish-speaking members.


“Simple Pretty Melody”

“Simple Pretty Melody” is the song we are invited to sing together this week. Hopefully this will be the first of many songs that unite us as we make a stand for global harmony.

Lyrics

With a simple pretty melody
To gather us together in harmony
Global harmony

We will rise higher
As a choir of voices
All the world will sing
