The selection took place through digital platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and TikTok and dance schools and music academies using professional choreographers, voice trainers and songwriters.
On December 5, 2017, Now United released their first single, "Summer in the City," on Al Gore's 24 Hours reality, aimed at raising awareness around the global climate crisis. The song is an English version of " Sommaren i City " written by Swedish female group Angel in 1992.
