Usually when we get on public transit to go to work, we don’t expect anything special to happen to us.

As this video starts, it looks like it’ll be just like any other day too.

In the video, you are shown different public transport settings from all around the world.

Still, the one common thing about them was on that day, the social movement group The Liberators International was present.

Everyone on public transport was surprised when these people stepped up and requested everyone to jump in for a sing-along.

As commuters got on trains and buses, they didn’t know that members of The Liberators International were mixed among them.

The commuters were surprised when a stranger greeted everyone and asked them a simple request—to join for a Bob Marley singalong. The scattered members all around the world simultaneously started giving people a sheet paper with lyrics of Bob Marley’s song, “Little Bird.”

By the end, half of the world became a stage for this spontaneous act!

Hundreds of the unsuspecting passengers from over 18 countries and 25 cities around the world found themselves singing to Bob Marley.

Everyone in the video was strangers to one another, all on their way to their respective destinations. Each of the representatives of each country and city had a different style of playing the song; some were upbeat, some were calm and jazzy. Moreover, people found themselves some partners to dance along with the music while everyone was singing the words.

Some public vehicles did not allow passengers to play instruments, but that did not stop them from singing and bonding with strangers on the ride.

It was truly a wonderful, beautiful and pure moment. Their group singing broke down barriers, making everyone bond in their own special way. Looking at the passengers singing happily and knowing that it was something unexpected is sure to make anyone smile from behind the screen!

“Little Bird” is one of Bob Marley’s most iconic songs ever written.

It was because in that song, Marley left us with the words “everything is gonna be alright.” In those simple words, he left us a hopeful message that despite adversity, people should always believe that “there is always a rainbow after the rain.” Marley’s songs of joy and unity were shared once again in this worldwide sing-along, and you could never doubt how greatly Marley influenced the world with his music.
