The 22-person choir was joined by soloists Joe Yazbeck, who has performed with Broadway touring companies and Judy Bechar, an International singer. The Choir performed original songs by Mr. Rexford Essilfie from Ghana as well as other songs encouraging spiritual freedom, freedom of thought, and freedom to live in peace.

“The event was an all-inclusive community event. Its purpose was to raise awareness and increase acceptance of Human Rights and religious tolerance of all faiths,” said Amber Skjelset, Manager of the Scientology Information Center.

Guests also learned their human rights during the performance where Mr. Yazbeck read the audience their 30 rights laid out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to piano accompaniment. The Church of Scientology supports and educates others of their rights and inspires people to protect these rights of others.

“Music is an amazing vehicle. It transcends languages, borders and communicates to the heart and soul. We feel that acceptance of the diversity of people, and their religions will resolve much of what is happening in the world today – and a stable foundation of human rights is the building block of it all. The Scientology Choir is honored to have performed for this cause,” said Linda Ferguson, Executive Director of the Choir.
The 22-person Scientology choir is a blend of performers from across the world.  They come from Canada, France, Greece, Holland, Hungary, Mexico, Russia, Scotland, Sweden, Switzerland and the United States.

Joanie Sigal and Tom Godfrey, Broadway and Beyond singing duo, will perform at the next concert in the Center on August 19th.
