Sister Cities of Houston Presents One World Concert: “We Are One” To Promote Unity in Global Pandemic
Sister Cities of Houston presents One World Concert: “We Are One” to promote unity in a global pandemic.
See below for details.
Sister Cities of Houston is very proud to have produced a virtual concert that was broadcasted in Houston, forwarded to our community and will post on our web site. We encourage you to see our One World Concert as an exciting and effective way to communicate and celebrate the mission of sister cities. Our theme for 2021 is “We are One” which resonated with all our communities in light of the pandemic and the freeze in Texas which happened shortly before our premier broadcast date of February 28. You get to meet our officers, at large board members and Mayor’s office liaison in hearing them each say what “We Are One” means to them.
After the success of this program, we are making our One World Concert an annual event to be held in February. Additionally, we are working on a new program of performances and are asking our board and members to recommend our theme for 2022. And we will have an announcement soon about our One World Award recipient for 2022.

Houston – Sister Cities of Houston showcases a world of talent in the first annual One World Concert. This free, virtual concert was broadcasted on Thursday, February 25, from 6 – 7pm CST. The theme of this year’s One World Concert is “We Are One” that we believe is fitting at a time when the world must come together to fight a global pandemic.
Mayor Sylvester Turner welcomes listeners to enjoy the free concert. Nelly and Felix Fraga will be honored with the first One World Award for their contributions to global understanding in forming the Houston-Guayaquil Sister City Association and founding the Ambassadors International Folklorico.
Sister Cities of Houston President Susan Young said of this year’s concert, “The global pandemic has made it clearer than ever that humankind shares one planet. It has also given us new tools to connect virtually. But the power of music to connect across boundaries, ages and cultures remains the same.”
