DETROIT (CBS Detroit) – Is there anything better than a random act of kindness? How about a random act of culture?

The Knight Foundation will be celebrated its 1000th Random Acts of Culture performance this Friday, August 10 in the lobby of the Compuware Building in Detroit.

At noon, more than 130 singer and musicians from the Detroit Children’s Choir performed “Ode to Joy” in the lobby.  The performance lasted for eight minutes.

The Random Acts of Culture have been performing for the past two years in eight different cities.  Miami, San Jose, Charlotte and St. Paul are some of the selected cities along with Detroit.

Because this upcoming performance is one of the last for the Random Acts series, the organizers are releasing the event information so as many people as possible will be able to attend this unique event.
