Over half a million students from over 2,100 schools same song, same day, same time.A crazy cool thing happened this morning! As part of Music: Count Us In's 10th anniversary celebrations, Channel 7's Sunrise followed ambassador John Foreman and a group of talented Sydney school students from Schools Spectacular to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge to sing 'Let It Play' marking 38 days until the 2016 Celebration Day when students from schools across Australia will sing the same song, on the same day, at the same time.
This is the second year BridgeClimb Sydney has been a supporter of Music: Count Us In from 134 metres above the harbour. The day was an incredible opportunity to promote Australia's biggest school initiative, which aims to draw attention to the importance of music education in Australian schools.

Also accompanying the students on the climb was Sefa Laga'aia, son of program mentor Jay Laga'aia. Sefa contributed vocals to the official recording of 2016 song 'Let It Play'.

Taking place on the 3rd of November, registrations are still open to join in and take part in this incredible event which will be headlined by a live broadcast from the Sydney Opera House where hundreds of students will lead the nation in song.
