May 5, 2014, marks Music Monday, and last year astronaut Chris Hadfield and Barenaked Ladies' Ed Robertson co-wrote "(I.S.S.) Is Somebody Singing?" especially for the occasion.
Then, in an unprecedented cross-hemisphere collaboration, the song was recorded live by Barenaked Ladies and the Wexford Gleeks choir in the Toronto CBC Studios along with Hadfield aboard the International Space Station, which you can watch above.
This year, Music Monday celebrates its 10th anniversary with a live webcast, culminating in a synchronized nationwide performance of "(I.S.S.) Is Somebody Singing," performed by Hadfield and led by Bramwell Tovey, music director of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. Head to the Music Monday site to catch it live on May 5.
