Default Sweet Charity Choir - Come Alive

Found this on the reddit front page today. This choir is trying to bring attention to suicide and depression in the music industry with Foo Fighters' Come Alive. I think they did an amazing job.

This is great. Just saw they retweeted it. Fantastic!

Do they play this live?

They've only played it three times, I think, and never since '07. Time for the song to make a reappearance!

Maybe this will give them a kick in the pants.

My husband LOVES this song, his favourite Foo song by far. I haven't had the heart to break it to him they're highly unlikely to play it when we see them this summer

(but let's hope this increases the odds... Dave tweeted to thank them and it's a UK charity - could happen, right?!)

Nice of them to acknowledge it so quickly. Hope it does make them rethink playing it live themselves. It is a slow build of a song and they don't always work well live but I don't think it's too different from Dirty Water in that regard. Should work nicely with the female backups they have now as well.

Be nice if they at least pull it out for the NYE show.
