Texas Apartment Block Bursts Into Song

An apartment block in Dallas burst into a singalong as people leaned out of their windows to sing the legendary Bill Wither’s track “Lean on Me.” Such performances have become a sign of solidarity amongst residents in Europe as people have been forced to self-isolate in their homes to help combat the coronavirus outbreak. And on Friday March 20, Danzel Barber of the Southside on Lamar building in Dallas, Texas, leaned out of his window and began singing, grabbing others’ attention. Before he knew it, dozens of open windows began joining in with Denzel, a part-time performer, while others observed and filmed the beautiful spectacle. The performance was suggested by fellow resident Bonnie Curry, a radio personality, who had seen the singalongs in Italy and thought it would be a good idea to channel such positivity. Bonnie made the request on the buildings list serve, suggesting a time the performance would take place. Another local, Mark Birnbaum, 72, happened to see the posting, and being a videographer, he headed outside at exact time, not knowing what to expect. Having set up a couple of cameras - and despite the drizzle - Mark and his wife, Margarita, were able to capture Denzel’s performance, as well as the reactions of those in the other windows.
