Id like to teach the world to sing Kalimba tab

I'd like to teach the world to sing is a pop song which originated as a jingle for an advert. It was produced by Billy Davis and was sung by the Hillside Singers for Coca-Cola in 1971. Although originally released as a bit of fun, the song became an instant hit. DJ’s throughout the country had requests to play the song and before long, it started to impact the charts. According to Coca-Cola, the company and its bottlers received more than 100,000 letters about the song alone, which helped to boost sales and improve the popularity of the already global brand. 

Today, this song is still known around the world throughout generations. Both grandparents and grandchildren still enjoy this jingle, making it an ideal option to learn on the kalimba. It still sounds fantastic and also brings back memories of the Coca-Cola ad it was originally used for. With a little bit of practice, you can master the sound of this song, enabling you to teach your children and show other family members!
