Embodying a giant karaoke session led by the AC/DC alum, per Classic Rock, the Nov. 3 video shows a live session organized by the Kennedy Choir, the signature singing troupe at John F. Kennedy Argentine University, with support from Chrystal Records, according to a report from Blabbermouth. The plan is for other choirs around the world to also contribute “Highway to Hell” vocals to the rendition.

Evans was AC/DC’s first lead singer before the late Bon Scott joined the band. Only the veteran Australian act’s debut single, 1974’s “Can I Sit Next to You, Girl” b/w “Rockin’ in the Parlour,” features Evans’ singing contributions. The group later re-recorded “Can I Sit Next to You, Girl” with Scott. Today, Brian Johnson is AC/DC’s longtime lead vocalist.
Five years ago, Evans commented on AC/DC’s endurance. “I like the fact that the brand is still out there,” he said in 2017. “That’s all it is these days — it’s just a brand. [Guitarist] Angus [Young] is the only original member left, and a lot of the others are all gone, too.”
Last year, Evans added, “[AC/DC] were always ambitious when we first started. We always wanted to be the best in the world — all of us. And after me, Bon Scott got his chance. He did great with the band.”
After his time in AC/DC, Evans fronted the rock band Rabbit in the ’80s before venturing out on his own with a solo career. Last year, he released the bluesy solo number “Who’s Gonna Rock Me?” Visit Evans’ official website at daveevansrocks.com.
