It becomes a normal pastime of everyday life. If visitors come to the house, they will all sing together, or if it's a special occasion they will enjoy singing as part of the celebrations. They love it when their friends sing, when they see a relative sing.
That's why it's the perfect activity for when you want to bring people together.
