    Definitely creative. I'd be interested to know what the creators did with the final product? Or was it created just to demonstrate a concept?

    @AmySteiner Indeed, I don't think the song was used for any other purposes. It would be great to record a national anthem in that way, with the voices of the citizens of the nation. It will be great to have an application that does that.
