TRENTON, Mo. -- A man has vowed to sing one song per day under an area overpass for a whole year in order to help homeless animals.
Wimer was on his way to work at the shelter when he coughed right underneath the overpass. What he heard was magic. He pulled over and walked right underneath the bridge. The natural echo, that’s what Wimer calls the sweet spot.
Wimer started singing in August. He found the best time to sing without traffic is just after midnight.
Just as he found the bridge by chance, at 14 years old he found opera in a similar way.
“I got my first taste of opera by finding a cassette by Luciano Pavarotti in one of the stores here and it was marked down to 99 cents. I guess it wasn’t moving well, they wanted to get rid of it and make room for something else. But I was just hooked when I heard this incredible tenor sing these incredible notes,” he said.
That initial love only grew. It drove him to create a new project called “Under the Overpass” where he sings a song a day for an entire year.
