O participated in the Young Voices choir 2019!

13th February, 2019

On Tuesday 15 January O attended Young Voices choir 2019 at Sheffield FlyDSA arena. There were over 5,000 children from schools across Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire coming together to form one HUGE choir. As part of the concert the kids sang with Tony Hadley(from Spandau Ballet), Beau Dermott (from BGT) and Sharlene Hector, who is a renowned backing singer with the likes of Emelie Sande, Tinie Tempah and Michael Bublé. They also danced with Urban Strides, a street dance troupe. O got to the venue at 1pm and they rehearsed for 3 hours in the afternoon and all the “stars” spoke to them and encouraged them to be brave, bold but most importantly enjoy themselves. O was one of only 24 kids that represented her school and she really enjoyed herself. Linzi and Neil arrived at 6.30 p.m, and they said: ‘when we arrived in the hall we were met by a bank of noise. The kids were giddy and looking forward to the concert. We finally spotted O and Neil was able to go over and get a picture of her before the concert started and wish her luck. There were about 7,000 excited, proud and anxious parents in the audience. I don’t know who was giddier the kids or the parents!’ When the concert started you could see that all the work was worth it, and the kids did a really great job. They sang songs from Moana, Greatest Showman along with different medleys and there was even a message of support from Mr Hugh Jackman. Young Voices were supporting teenage cancer and have raised over £100,000 for the charity this year. For further information on young voices visit O didn’t get back until 10.30 that night and although she was very tired, she loved the experience and was still buzzing.
