WATCH: ‘I can’t keep quiet’ – flash choir performs acapella anthem at Women’s March

Over three million reportedly marched around the world

In Washington on Saturday, a group of women — who had never met before and only practiced online — organised a series of guerrilla-style performances of ‘Quiet’, a new release by LA artist MILCK

This is how it went:

According to the project’s website:

“The #ICANTKEEPQUIET project is dedicated to celebrating our unique voices and identities, in an effort to break the cycles of oppression perpetuated by today’s media.”

Over 500,000 women are believed to have joined Saturday’s march in Washington, along with several million more in cities around the world.

    I am amazed, & thrilled at all of you & behind every man/woman/child who marched all around the world against this orange POS. This song is beautiful.

    Bless each & every one of you.

    Hi and THANK YOU for DOING THIS! This song is powerful, strong and beautiful and gives me “chicken-skin;” brings me to tears every time I watch it. Singing our way through tough times has helped in so many oppressive times and places in the world. Keep singing with your/our heavenly voices. (I wish I could sing but my heart is there!). I marched in Maui Hawaii and I am still floating from the momentum, and reeling at same time from more abysmal news every day. We stand together!

    Can’t stop watching. As a retired HS English Teacher and boomer who marched for the Equal Rights Amendment in the 1970’s in DC, I had to march because I was so worried for your generation. Your song symbolizes a great awakening that has taken place. I am so much more hopeful now. I know that more will vote to fight this president whether Democrat or Republican. I share your sentiment, “I can’t keep quiet.” Friends and family may walk away from me for marching but I had to be there! Love to all of you. This video has been shared with a former student at University of Virginia. I hope he shares this.

    Hi I love your stuff and my friends and I are going to do a march in Colchester Essex in England and I was wondering if we could sing that song with your name at the bottom of our signs with the #cant be quite.
