What an Amazing Night! I just wanted to say how much Hessle High enjoyed the event – it was truly an amazing experience and one that we most definitely would like to be involved in next time you do it. The talent was astounding and the soloists I thought were so professional and sang brilliantly.

I have to say, compared to all the other organisations we’ve worked with on this sort of project, your administration and communication are absolutely outstanding.

THANK YOU VERY, VERY MUCH for a wonderful day/eve at the O2. All our participating children and staff had a fantastic time, and our supporters including the Head Teacher, were lavish in their praise of a moving and high quality performance.  As a teacher, I would like to thank you for the sensitive and effective way you handled the whole day, especially your expectations of the children’s behaviour, (which made the whole day SO much more enjoyable than similar events I have endured at the O2 with another organisation!).  I also appreciated the effort you made to make every child feel as if their contribution mattered – it would be easy to feel insignificant in such a vast venue, but you made us all feel valued and appreciated!! And congratulations to all your brave soloists, who were, without exception, outstanding, and such amazing role models for their peers. We’ll see you next year, if that’s alright with you!

Many thanks for allowing us to be part of the fantastic event at the O2 yesterday; the students were totally buzzing about the whole experience. In fact they were so involved they hassled me all the way home (literally) to make sure we register now for next year!

I just thought I’d like to say a huge thank you for last night. It was a fantastic evening. The girls were full of it all still this morning (although sleep walking through lessons!).

Thank you for giving Dunottar the opportunity to perform on the stage, that is something they are going to remember for the rest of their lives. I can’t believe how brave they are at such a young age.

All our parents were really impressed with the event too.
Well done and thank you for all your hard work.

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.”

Gayhurst School

On Tuesday 12th March, 52 excited members of the Lower Chamber Choir set off for Wembley Arena to take part in a show called Voice in a Million. They joined around 5000 other children from schools all over the country in a huge concert to help raise awareness of adoption and children in poverty.

After an excellent performance of Philip Wilby’s God be in my head in the altogether different setting of the Commemoration Service the previous Saturday, this felt like a very timely reward for the pupils as they danced the day and night away under the arena lights. The main song of the event, I want a Mum, highlighted the aim of the show, whilst more familiar songs such as The Edge of Glory, Count on me, Firework and Sing went down a hit with the pupils. In all, they took part in 17 of the 26 songs performed, with the remaining nine featuring guest choirs, some of whom had been formed as a direct result of the first Voice in a Million show four years ago.

Everyone had the time of their lives singing in a packed arena. Thanks must go to all the parents and staff who came along to support what was a truly memorable event.
