Pupils from Cuddington Croft school in Cheam enjoyed one of the most memorable nights of their lives recently as they took part in the Voice in a Million concert at Wembley Arena.
The 46 members of the school choir put in three months of rehearsing for their big moment, and they were not to be disappointed as they got to sing with 150 other school choirs from across the country in a concert organised by the Voice in a Million charity, which aims to raise awareness of the world’s forgotten children – by giving others a
voice on their behalf.
“It was an absolutely brilliant experience for the children and everyone involved – I couldn’t be more proud,” said teacher Caroline Davis, who runs the choir. “The way it’s set up is that the choirs take up all the usual arena seating, with the floor of the arena – where people usually stand – being devoted to seating for spectators, so you’re totally surrounded by the voices of the children. It’s an amazing experience.”
Whilst most of the children sang in the main arena choir, two lucky members of the Cuddington contingent – Harry Still and Ben Quigley - got to sing solos, accompanied by the smaller stage choir, after passing auditions. An already unforgettable day for the children and the many family members who went to watch them became even more
memorable when they were joined by X Factor judge Aleesha Dixon, and Britain’s Got Talent duo Bars and Melody, who sang with them.
“The children will remember this remarkable experience forever, and so will the family members who came along to watch them,” said Ms Davis. “But they put in so much hard work that they deserved every second of it.”
