The Spizzwinks(?) are celebrating their 105th Anniversary, and we’re pulling out all the stops.
How Can I Prepare?
Lend your voice to the Spizzwinks(?) Virtual Choir Project. Join your fellow Spizzwinks(?) and their fans from around the world and submit a video of yourself singing “Somewhere.” We’ll stitch them all together into a video collage, crossing time and space, that unites the world of Winkdom. Here’s a sneak peak with the first few singers:
