Did you know that I am a recording artist signed to Universal Records? Bet you didn't! Two years ago I hadn't sung since my school days. On Sunday I sang at Wembley Arena. There are two words to explain this:
See the video About Rock Choir
Rock Choir has become a something of a phenomenon in the UK. Formed in 2005, Rock Choir was started by Caroline Redman-Lusher with just seven choirs members. Six years later there are 130 Rock Choirs around the UK with a total of 8000 members - I joined Watford Rock Choir when it was formed 2 years ago. There are no auditions to join, just a desire to sing your hearts out to a mix of pop, gospel, and Tamla Motown.
Being part of Rock Choir has brought such happiness to my life. To discover that I could sing and to share the joy of singing with others has been an amazing experience. Last year Rock Choir Volume One topped the album charts!
I've participated in some amazing events over the last two years but singing with 8000 Rock Choir Members at Wembley Arena was something very special believe me.
Here's some of the lovely sopranos from Watford that I sing with waiting to go into the Arena.
You can hear how 8000 of us sounded in this YouTube clip Rock Choir at Wembley singing Don''t Let the Sun Go Down On Me with guest singers, The Soldiers. Next month ITV will be showing a 3 part documentary on Rock Choir.
Now that the UK has been conquered Rock Choir is coming to Europe. Norwegian Rock Choirs will start next year. It's only a matter of time before we achieve world domination!
