In September 1998, Palumbo became Executive Producer and owner of the video documentary, “Singing in Color.” The film “Singing in Color”, directed by Bruce Weinstein, shows how music is a vehicle for the message of peace. It tells the story of the Chicago Children's Choir's historic tour of South Africa, including a personal visit with Nelson Mandela, in the summer of 1996. The film is sold at the choir's performances and proceeds support the operation of the choir.
