Chris Hadfield Keeps Being the Best, Covers “Across the Universe” With the Wexford Gleeks
They tumble blindly as they make their way across the internet.
Canadian astronaut, musician, and our collective geek crush Chris Hadfield appeared on CBC News Toronto recently, and part of his appearance was a performance of the Beatles classic “Across the Universe” with the Wexford Gleeks. The choir tries to force some Christmas music into it to fit with a “Sounds of the Season” theme, but enjoy it anyway.
The Wexford Gleeks have performed with Hadfield before almost a year ago. Along with The Barenaked Ladies, Hadfield and the Gleeks performed Hadfield’s original song “I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing?)” The best part? Hadfield was in space at the time, joining the other musicians via satellite.
