Do you think he is the first Astronaut to actually do a semi-professional performance
from space...? I can't off hand think of any in the past...

He really did do a good job, IMHO...!

Chris Hadfield. That's hitting close to home. Chris Hadfield is from Milton. My daughters attend the PS named after him.

There was also a link up with Chris Hadfield from the Ontario Science Centre where he sang a song with kids around the world a week or two ago. A song that he co-wrote with Ed Robertson from the Barenaked Ladies.

Here's a link to one of the versions . . .

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AvAnfi8WpVE

My daughter was one of the choir attending the Ontario Science Centre hook-up and she ended up getting on the news with her friends after that.

Edit: My daughters have been running around the house singing Is Somebody Singing. <grin>

Chris Hadfield has been very high profile and completely accessible with hook-ups with schools all over the place. Promoting science, space exploration and the arts!

I hear that Sarah Brightman is aiming to make it out to space and perform as well.

Here's a link showing more of what was happening at the Ontario Science Centre, but this was for Music Monday and schools from around the world were singing along. A lot of voices singing in unison. That's pretty cool.
