Members of the choir at Cuddington Croft School in Cheam are counting off the days until the biggest performance of their lives as they get ready to take part in the Voice in a Million concert at Wembley Arena in March.
The concert is part of a British-based international campaign to raise awareness of the adoption system, using the idea of children’s voices to give a voice to those in the system who are looking for a new family and fresh start in life. Cuddington will be taking a 46-strong party to the Wembley event, which is part of a series of concerts taking place across the country, and choir leader Caroline Davis says the children are thrilled at the prospect. “Once I heard about the scheme from a friend, I had to get the school involved, and it’s proved a hugely popular idea,” she said.
“As you can imagine, the children are getting massively excited by the prospect of such a big show. They’ll be singing a variety of music, from ‘Let it Go’ to ‘Respect’ and ‘All of Me’. They’re going to be rehearsing for it for three months, and recently we had a visit from a band called Ynfiniti, who are girls who have grown up performing in the Voice In A Million concerts over the years, and have now formed their own band. That really inspired them.
“Performing at Wembley will be an amazing experience for the children. It’ll also be pretty special for the parents, as many of them have already bought tickets, but I hope everyone associated with the school, whether they’re got a connection to the choir or not, will take pride in what the children are doing. They’re certainly making us proud.”
