Tye Austin Performs at United Nations

On October 17, 2017 I had the distinct honor to perform at the United Nations for the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. I performed Spanish Romance and Sor’s Etude No. 5 in the UN Conference Hall. Performing for hundreds of world-leaders in the same room was truly an unforgettable life experience. I also performed my arrangement of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah for choir and guitar continuo next to a portion of the Berlin Wall in the UN Rose Garden. The entire community joined me during the chorus of the song. It was a surreal and magical experience.

I’m honored to have joined ATD Fourth World’s global campaign to stop poverty by uniting people through music. I’d like to thank ATD Fourth World for inviting me to perform at the UN for this wonderful event. Together we can end poverty once and for all! To learn more about how to end poverty, visit atd-fourthworld.org You can watch both performances in the United Nations Headquarters in NYC below.
