Children in Year 4 and Year 5 became part of a 5000 strong choir on Tuesday night when they took part in “Voice in a Million” at Wembley Arena.
Voice in a Million organise huge arena-scale concerts, providing school children from across the UK with an experience of a lifetime, performing in front of an audience of thousands to “make a difference” in a musical evening of awe-inspiring family entertainment.
The Voice in a Million Choir officially launched in January 2010 and has since staged sell-out concerts in Arenas across the country. The idea behind the initiate was to raise awareness for the British Association for Adoption and Fostering.
Before the event the children had to learn the songs they would be performing which included “We are Young” by FUN., “Skyfall” by Adele, “Firework” by Katy Perry and “Edge of Glory” by Lady Gaga.
The following are comments from some of the children who took part:
“My favourite parts were singing ‘Firework’ and ‘Skyfall’. I would love to do it again because it was epic.” Guy L (4W)
“I really enjoyed Voice in a Million at Wembley. I enjoyed singing and thought the choice of songs was good. It is something I would definitely do again.” James G (5F)
“Voice in a Million was great fun – we sang and danced the whole time.” Eloise W (4W)
One of our parents who attended the concert commented afterwards “Thank you very much indeed for providing the opportunity for the Gayhurst choir to be part of such an unforgettable evening at Wembley Arena. It was both uplifting and moving and it was hard to keep back the tears when all 5000 children were singing in one voice.”
