* "I Have a Dream" by Music/{{ABBA}} features a children's choir. It's also the only song the group released to feature vocals by anyone other than the four members, though several of their songs use multi-tracking to give the effect of a choir. The studio version features the choir of the International School of Stockholm, but, when ABBA performed the song on tour, local children's choirs were used.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Langley_Schools_Music_Project The Langley Schools Music Project]]. In 1976 a Vancouver musician took a part-time job as an elementary school music teacher and decided to have the kids learn to sing and play cover versions of songs like [[Music/DavidBowie "Space Oddity"]], [[{{Music/Eagles}} "Desperado"]], [[Music/FleetwoodMac "Rhiannon"]], [[{{Music/Wings}} "Band on the Run"]] and [[{{Music/Klaatu}} "Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft"]]. They recorded a couple of vanity pressing albums that were rediscovered, released in 2001, and quickly gained a cult following. The story also loosely inspired ''Film/SchoolOfRock''.
