Today is Music Monday in Canada, an annual event sponsored by the Coalition for Music Education. Every year, students across Canada simultaneously sing a song specially written for the event.

This year's song Is Somebody Singing? (I.S.S.) was cowritten by Commander Chris Hadfield and Ed Robertson from the Barenaked Ladies.

At 12 PM eastern standard time, with the Space Station directly above Toronto, Commander Hadfield via satellite phone led 1000 children in singing the song. Meanwhile, across Canada, students watched the live webcast, and joined in the song.
