People were busy shopping and roaming around in Skopje, not until they were caught off guard with a pleasant surprise.

One by one, the young women entered and sang their parts on the song as they heard the piano play the song “Imagine” by John Lennon.

There were also children sitting around the food court disguised as shoppers, but then everyone was surprised when they melodiously backed up the others with harmonies.

The children were eventually covering the entire open space of the mall and singing together in unison.

Their beautiful harmonies were beautiful to the ears and it gave everyone in the crowd a feeling of peace and unity.

Everyone in the building was bursting with joy as people stopped to watch their wholesome performance. In the latter part of the song, the teen boys entered the scene and soon the mall was echoing with their deep vocals.

When they finished positioning themselves with the other kids, they just filled the whole building with their wonderful voices.

The kids were holding each others’ hands and some were wrapping their arms around each others’ shoulders.

The scene was just too heart-melting and pure.

You could also see little kids playing around with their colorful balloons, and even older audience members tearing up as they happily sang along with the choir.

The audience waved their balloons at the end of the song and took pictures with the children choir shortly after.

It was a day of pure bliss for everyone.

As it turns out, the performance was done to mark 70 years of UNICEF’s unending service to children around the world.

Every child singing on that platform was hired by UNICEF to celebrate the organization’s 70th anniversary.

The song “Imagine” by John Lennon and Tose Proeski’s “This World” were rearranged and rewritten by UNICEF in 2004, and they are what the kids performed that very day.

Even the comments section was filled with positivity and hope. The people shared their feelings and sentiments after watching the wholesome video, in which most of them described it as “the most beautiful version they have ever heard.”

So, what does UNICEF do?

For those who don’t know, UNICEF stands for United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund.

This worldwide organization holds a certain belief:

“All children have a right to survive, thrive and fulfill their potential—to the benefit of a better world.”

With that mission, they have been working in over 190 countries to protect the rights of every child, enabling them to build a better future for themselves.

The agency relies on contributions from the government and private donors.

They accept heartfelt donations from people who are willing to help children all over the world. The money that they get would is then used for shelter, food and protection from disaster and conflicts. The funds also provide for their education. Right now, they are collaborating with front-liners across the globe to fight back against COVID-19.
