I went to hear Garrison Keillor do a reading at Yale several years ago and he read a few of his essays. Good, poignant, funny stuff. But at the end of his program, he asked the audience to sing with him. We sang Love Me Tender by Elvis and I'll always remember feeling in an altered state created by singing those words in unison with the whole audience. There was a hushed magic in the air as we filed out, electrifying and peaceful. There is nothing, in my opinion, more bonding than singing in unison.
