Astronaut Duets With Barenaked Ladies From Space

By SARAH KOO

From Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj to Micheal Jackson and Paul McCartney, unlikely duets  in the music biz are pretty much the norm, but the Barenaked Ladies now take the cake for out there, and we mean way out there, collaborations.    Frontman Ed Robertson has been working with astronaut  Chris Hadfield who's currently aboard the International Space Station,  on the song “I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing?),”  as part of  Music Monday this May, an initiative to promote  of music education and the Canadian space program.

To perform the song, the Barenaked Ladies were joined by the Wexford Gleeks from Wexford Collegiate School for the Arts here on planet Earth while Commander Hadfield strummed and sang his part from space, and we've got to tell you, this spaceman has skills!

The former Royal Canadian Air Force fighter pilot made headlines just  yesterday for his satellite chat with Captain Kirk aka William Shatner,  and he will become the first Canadian to command the orbiting space laboratory in March.
